Peyton Manning shared the MVP award with Steve McNair in 2003, the first of the former Colts quarterback’s Hall of Fame career. Counting that season, either Manning or Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been named NFL MVP six times in those nine seasons. It’s beginning to look like it could be one of those two legends once again coming away with the trophy this season. Manning and Brady have us marveling over their play once again, and the two may be on a crash course to meet once again in the AFC Championship. If that does happen, there’s a good chance this season’s MVP will be on the field. Let’s get to this week’s NFL MVP power rankings. Tom Brady — New England Patriots quarterback  The Patriots keep on winning, and Brady keeps on impressing. New England has dominated the competition in the last two weeks, having torn up the Colts and Jets, helping the Pats to an unbelievable 108 points in just two weeks. In fact, the Patriots are averaging an unheard of 43.8 points per game in t...

Manning throws 2 TDs in Broncos' win

Peyton Manning threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns, and the Denver Broncos rallied to beat the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 17-9 on Sunday for their sixth straight win. Manning hit tight end Jacob Tamme late in the first half and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the third quarter, and that was more than enough to overcome three field goals by the Chiefs' Ryan Succop as Kansas...

Chiefs players pay respect to Manning

Jamaal Charles had just rushed for over 100 yards for the second time in three games. Dwayne Bowe, to little fault of his own, had hauled in just four passes for 41 yards. Unfortunately for Chiefs fans, both were on the losing end of a game for the 8th consecutive time, this time at the hands of the second-winningest quarterback in NFL history. Peyton Manning. The commercial icon...

Charles & Bowe ran down Peyton Manning for autographs after defeat.

NFL division rivalries are the fabric of the league. The fans of the teams associated with the rivalries share a deeply rooted disgust with the opponents with their team of choice and that emotion is one of the league’s greatest selling points. It’s understandable that Kansas City Chiefs fans are really upset with Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe at the moment. Please Click...

Tom Brady Has Patriots’ Offense Rolling Right Now, But He Knows Better Than Anyone Winning in Miami is Never Easy

FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots have been a dominant road team for over a decade now. But while most teams tend to roll over when Tom Brady and the Patriots come to town, the annual trip to Miami continues to be daunting. Over the course of the long-standing series, the Dolphins hold a staggering advantage when the Patriots take their talents to South Beach. The Patriots are just...

Colts Fans versus Patriots Fans: Which Fan Base Is Better … and Luck or Brady, Who Ya Got?

The Indianapolis Colts have had a surprisingly strong season (well, unless you picked them to make the playoffs before the season started), and currently sit at 7-4 after this weekend’s win over Buffalo. The only real recent on-field downer for Indianapolis was the blowout loss to the Patriots. But it may not have been a total loss for the Colts, at least not if Indy fans were...

Broncos one game away from clinching AFC West

The Denver Broncos can clinch the AFC West with one more win or one more San Diego Chargers loss. The 8-3 Broncos will win the AFC West title for a second consecutive year and finish no worse than a No.4 AFC playoff spot, if they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. "No. 1, we don't want to worry about all that," Broncos...

Dolphins tasked with slowing down Tom Brady

DAVIE, Fla. Its probably not a good idea to compare your rookie quarterback to Tom Brady the week your team plays New England. Perhaps thats why Miami center Mike Pouncey played it coy on Wednesday when asked to expound upon having last month compared Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Patriots star. I said that? Pouncey said before laughing. You sure? That a rookie reminded...

Denver Broncos: On Their Way to the Super Bowl

The Denver Broncos currently have a record of 8-3, have won their past six games and are sitting comfortably atop of the AFC West division.With quarterback Peyton Manning and the rest of the Denver Broncos playing well, two questions come to mind.First, can the Broncos run the table and finish the season with a 13-3 record?

Dwayne Bowe Ineffective vs. Denver

Kansas City wideout Dwayne Bowe saw 12 targets Sunday but had just four receptions for 41 yards.Fantasy Spin:Bowe had to catch passes from Brady Quinn while watching Peyton Manning sling the ball to Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. How cruel. He should be parked on fantasy benches.

Broncos on verge of winning the West

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Before the season begins, almost every team puts these words near the top of a long list of goals: ''Win the division.'' That's all but a foregone conclusion in Denver, though when the Broncos wrap up the AFC West, there won't be much of a celebration. They didn't bring Peyton Manning...

Rob Gronkowski’s Tampa home (PICS)

You may have heard of the New England Patriots’ third-year tight end Rob Gronkowski.  What Tom Brady doesn’t own in the Boston-area, Gronk does.  But even Gronk needs a break from the tools that are Boston sports fans.  So he looked south, Tampa Florida to be exact and purchased a mansion pimp palace for $1.6 million. Gronk, his brothers and father have been patrolling Tampa...
