New England Patriots: Wild Card Round Power Rankings (#1)

It’s 2006 again. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning appear to be on a crash course. Both quarterbacked arguably the best teams in the league (the Broncos and Patriots ranked 2nd and 3rd in the NFL in DVOA, but I don’t trust #1 Seattle on the road). Both are MVP candidates. Peyton Manning is currently viewed as the favorite, but I think that’s both undeserved and beneficial to the...

Rank ‘em: QBs in the Playoffs. Will the best QB take Lombardi home?

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning... this rivalry is old-school. There is no question that as the NFL evolves from smash mouth football towards a finesse based delicate league, the play of the quarterback is at a premium.

Since his injury, the Patriots had won all but one game, but not having Gronkowski on the offense hurt...
