It was what NFL fans have want to see almost every year. The two future Hall of Famers Tom Brady and Peyton Manning engaged in a heated battle for all to see.
This one should have been a runaway win for the Patriots, but some late game mistakes opened the door for a late Bronco rally.
Again, the big story is the 251 rushing yards racked up by the Patriots running backs. Stevan Ridley led the group (151) but had a costly fumble that opened the door for Manning and the Broncos' one last chance.
Manning nearly pulled off another fourth-quarter comeback in a career filled with them.

In their 13th meeting of the two, Brady directed four scoring drives of at least 80 yards. He's 9-4 in his career against Manning.
The defense came up big when it counted. Rob Ninkovich forced a Willis McGahee fumble in the red zone that ended any hope for the Broncos.
Brady had this to say:
"It's Patriots-Broncos,... It was a great team win. We got some turnovers from our defense and I thought offensively capitalized at times. There were a few lulls in there, which I wish we had executed a little bit better, but for the most part it's a good day."
