4:25 p.m. ET - Denver Broncos at. New England Patriots (CBS) Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
Why it's interesting: Well, this sounds familiar.
Peyton Manning and Tom Brady—the NFL’s variation of the NBA’s Magic-Bird rivalry—will get together for their 14th head-to-head meeting. Brady currently holds an 8-5 advantage. However, Manning has won five of the last seven.
Although Manning is now in Broncos gear, the feelings between the two future Hall of Famers will remain the same.
Together, the two combined for six NFL MVP awards in a span of eight years from 2003-2010. Both have lifted up the Lombardi Trophy. Both have set countless NFL records.
But most of all, both want to beat the other badly.
This Sunday should be no different.
What to watch for: Both teams come into the contest 2-2, which is unusual for their rivalry's standards.
However, after getting off to a shaky 1-2 start, both quarterbacks stepped up to take it to another level this past weekend. A dominant, more familiar level.
After falling behind 21-7, Brady rallied the Patriots to a 52-28 victory. Brady threw for 340 yards on 22-of-36 passing to go along with three touchdowns. His quarterback rating was 120.1 for the game.
Manning, on the other hand, was near perfect throughout the Broncos' 37-6 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Manning was precise through the air, going 30-of-38 for 338 yards and three touchdowns. He registered a quarterback rating of 130.0 for his efforts.
Both quarterbacks have played fairly similar thus far.
They've both had one game where they just couldn't seem to figure it out—against the Arizona Cardinals for Brady and against the Atlanta Falcons for Manning.
But now, they get back to something they're fairly familiar with: putting on great duels.
The last seven meetings between these two quarterbacks have been decided by seven points or less.
Sunday's contest looks to be no different.
Advantage: Tom Brady. Slightly.
It's always tough picking between these two. Their rivalry always seems to bring out the best in each other. However, it might just be too early on in the season to expect that from Manning.
Although his overall numbers look great, Manning has struggled with his accuracy. For the last time Manning had a completion percent under 65 percent—he's currently at 64.7 percent—you would have to go all the way to 2001.
While his last performance displayed signs that he is regaining his old form, it's too early to tell.
