Posted December 13, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Denver Broncos' five previous visits to Baltimore haven't gone very well, but they also didn't have Peyton Manning under center. With the teams battling for AFC playoff positioning, Manning looks to help guide Denver to its ninth straight victory Sunday while winning his ninth consecutive start against the Ravens, whose offense is now being run by one of Manning's mentors. Manning has been stellar in his first season with Denver, throwing for an AFC-best 30 touchdowns with a 104.0 passer rating that ranks fourth in the NFL while guiding the Broncos (10-3) to the AFC West title. He finished 26 of 36 for 310 yards and a touchdown Dec. 6 in a 26-13 win at Oakland to give the team its longest winning streak since the 1998 John Elway-led Broncos won their first 13 games en route to their second straight Super Bowl. Denver has dropped each of its five trips to Baltimore - including the last two by a combined 37 points - but Manning may be who it needs to end that s...

Peyton Manning is not a top 2 MVP candidate

So, all year, or at least since everyone realized Matt Ryan was a fraud, Peyton has inexplicably been leading the MVP race. This has made NO sense to me whatsoever. I could not understand how Peyton could possibly be ahead of TB12 in the race. Like did people forget about turnovers all of a sudden? It just made no sense to me. Like yeah, I get it media, Peyton is such a nice guy...

Brady is the MVP. And arguably, the best ever. My question and my wonder is how is there so much fascination on Peyton Manning as MVP this year? I respect and understand what Manning has done but even this year alone, TB12 is the clear cut MVP. Why

I don’t watch ESPN so I don’t know what they’re saying but I have a couple points...

Broncos bring Manning to Baltimore this time

(Eds: Adds background, quotes. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The last time the Denver Broncos won a game in Baltimore, a baby-faced John Elway was making his second NFL start and producing his first career fourth-quarter comeback. That was way back in 1983, before the Colts left for Indianapolis. The Broncos are 0-5 in Baltimore since the Ravens entered...

Brady is the Hands Down MVP

This shouldn't even be a debate anymore. Brady has to be the 2012 MVP. No it's not Adrian Peterson. No it's not Peyton Manning. It's TB12. Year in and year out Brady puts up numbers that have never been seen before or breaks some sort of monumental record. Well this year he's at it again. Here are some of his stats and ranks from coldhardfootballfacts.com (as...

NFL Picks, 2012 Season, Week 15

The sense heading into the 2012 season was that if Peyton Manning could come back to anything resembling his earlier years, the Denver Broncos would be in position to have a pretty good season. Manning has answered any doubters he may have had to the tune of 3,800 yards and 30 touchdowns heading into week 15. And the Broncos have won eight in a row, running away with a division that...

Peterson: MVP is best player, not best QB

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson's numbers speak for themselves: 1,600 rushing yards, 1,811 total yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns. The first two numbers lead the NFL, and he's tied for third in touchdowns. Peterson knows, in the eyes of some, not even those numbers are enough to sway MVP voters his way. He knows the usual considerations will come for the league...

What Happened To The AFC?

It took three consecutive years of NFC supremacy in the Super Bowl, an MVP from Green Bay, and a season without Peyton Manning for it to happen, but in September 2012 football analysts across the country were ready to label the NFC as the dominant conference in the National Football League.  The pundits argued that the era of Brady vs. Manning had become the time of Rodgers vs....
