Manning and Brady have faced off 16 times before, that actually equals a full season’s worth of battles between the two all time great quarterbacks whose careers it seems will forever be compared to each other. When we think of the great sports rivalries, Manning vs Brady has to be in the conversation just like Bird vs. Magic or Ali vs. Frazier . This weekend’s tilt though has a feeling of finality to it. Almost as if we are witnessing a battle of gladiators for the final time and for that we must appreciate this game.

The loser will hardly be an after thought because this rivalry is already historic, no matter how much the principals try to downplay it, we will discuss Manning and Brady for years to come.
