The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots clash on Sunday to determine who represents the AFC in this year’s Super Bowl. I take a look at some key things to note for this matchup.
It feels like it was not that long ago that the Broncos and Patriots were involved in one of the most memorable games in the history of the series. The Broncos rallied from a 21-7 deficit to take the lead and ultimately win the Week 12 matchup in overtime.
This time, instead of Brady vs. Osweiler, it is the 17th installment of Brady vs. Manning. And it could be for the last time. So, let us enjoy this while we can. And get ready for a big showdown between two of the top teams in the AFC in recent years.
Both teams were a bit banged up in the first meeting. But it appears that both of them will be near full strength for this contest. That is what I think is what will make it worthwhile. Two teams at their very best going at it.
A lot of players that were not in the championship game two years ago will get a taste of this one. Von Miller and Chris Harris Jr. missed the meeting two years ago due to season ending ACL injuries.
There are so many storylines that are going into this game. But let us get right into the preview for this highly anticipated AFC Championship Game.
