The Denver Broncos might be on the verge of something special. Hosting competition favourites in the form of the Patriots on Monday morning (7am AEST check local guides), the Colorado franchise is well positioned to take out the AFC Championship and head to the big dance for Super Bowl 50.
All of the talk and speculation leading into the big game surrounds the form of veteran quarterback Peyton Manning and his match up with Tom Brady. The New England star enjoys a sizeable winning record against Peyton and the speculation about his future doesn’t help matters.
The 39-year old’s form has dipped dramatically this season, leading many to speculate about Brock Osweiler taking his position. Regardless of posting the record for most passing yards of any QB in the history of the NFL and having the experience of winning a Super Bowl himself, the injuries, HGH drugs scandal and a string of poor performances have put Manning firmly in the crosshairs of the fans, press and Bill Belichick.
The Broncos have a proud, if not completely decorated history, in the National Football League. Their only taste of success in February came during the back-to-back 1997 and 98 seasons where John Elway led the club to the promised land. Since that time Elway has taken a hands-on approach behind the scenes and many fans are looking to his experience to make the call on Peyton Manning. Who better to judge the merits of a quarterback than one of the true greats and without doubt the best Denver Bronco of them all?
The subzero freeze of Mile High Stadium means that the Orange Crush faithful have to endure the comforts of home. It’s an advantage hosting the Patriots in their own backyard, but for those who cover and follow the team, it puts a premium of coming away with a win.
