AFC Championship: Matchups to watch

Author: Kristy


Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will get the headlines leading up to Sunday’s AFC Championship game, but in the Week 12 meeting between the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, the teams combined for 396 rushing yards.

That first meeting also went to overtime, a reflection of how narrow the gap is between the Broncos and the Patriots.

Down 24 points at halftime, Brady led his team back with three second-half touchdown passes before Manning forced overtime with an 11-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas. A muffed punt was the difference in the game, setting up a 31-yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal that capped the comeback.

Here are four matchups that will stamp a ticket to the Super Bowl.
