It has come down to the final four teams in the 2014 NFL Playoffs. The final two teams representing the AFC and NFC conferences will face off on Sunday to decide who will go on to play in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suffered his first playoff loss in 2006 when playing the Broncos in Denver and owns a losing regular season record (4-5) against them all-time. Brady does however seem to have Peyton Manning's number, as he has beaten him ten of the fourteen times they have squared off, including twice in the past two seasons.
Both of the previous two losses were in New England, though, and Brady is 2-4 overall when playing in Denver. Manning, meanwhile, is 6-0 since 2008 when playing against a team he lost to earlier in the season.
Denver is 2-1 against the Patriots all-time in the playoffs (their only loss came with Tim Tebow under center), including a 2-0 mark at home. Denver is 25-19 all-time against New England in the regular season.
