The postseason numbers are 85-of-136 for 890 yards with four TDs and two picks for Brady, and 109-for-179 for 1,224 and four TDs and six picks forr Manning. Steve Carlton Jersey. In other words, its razor close between the two meaning the supporting casts are going to be the key to this one. Brady is concerned with getting off to a fast start because Denver likes to play with the lead and pile on, unloading its pass rush on defense which features the explosive DeMarcus Ware and well as the reigning AFC Defensive Player of the Month Von Miller. Theyve played from ahead, which has been a great advantage for them all season, Brady said. Hopefully we can get off to a fast start and make them play from behind for once, because you dont want to get behind these guys too much. (Miller and Ware) are as good as anybody, he continued. Theyre just dominant, explosive players. Ones got nine sacks, ones got seven sacks. Theyre seven games into the year and theyre putting up record numbers. Theyre phenomenal players. Manning is tied for the NFL lead with 22 TD passes and leads the league with a 119.0 passer rating. Sanders was his favorite target against San Diego and this week it may be back to Demaryius Thomas or Julius Thomas or Wes Welker or anyone else suiting up at a skill position for Denver. Peyton uses all of his options, Belichick said. If theyre open, he throws it to them. Always a perfectionist, though, Manning is a bit upset that Denver ranks just sixth in the NFL in offense, amassing 398.4 yards per game. Its still early in the season, Manning said. Were still trying to figure out some things that were doing well and that were not doing well. The Patriots, on the other hand, may not have the horses they once had but remain relevant because of the stewardship at the top, namely Belichick and Brady. After a slow start Brady has picked things up, winning AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for October after leading New England to a 4-0 record in the month and completing 100-of-144 passes for 1,268 yards with 14 touchdowns and no interceptions. The high-octane explosiveness probably isnt there any longer with the New England offense but Bradys ability to protect the football has helped generate a plus-11 turnover ratio, tops in the league The Pats have also improved offensively over the pass four weeks due to the reemergence of their tight ends. New England got only 188 total yards from Gronkowski and Co. during their 2-2 start and 601 in four games since. Rob, hes a great target, Brady said. Hes got the size, speed. Hes really become a great route runner himself. Hes really been a real key part of our offense for as long as hes been here. Hes effective on all downs but hes just a big, strong, physical presence and really smart football player. Against Chicago, New Englands top three targets -- LaFell, Gronkowski and Tim Wright -- were thrown at 27 times, resulting in a mind-numbing 27 catches. Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, though, has significant talent at all three levels. Theyve got all pros at every level of defense, Brady said of the Broncos D. Theyve got an incredible secondary thats playing great this year with a lot of interceptions, playing with a lot of confidence. Linebackers are all really fast and athletic and then they are one of the best D-lines in the NFL. They really force you to play with great execution. OVERALL ANALYSIS The two narratives here are obviously Brady versus Manning and the fact that the Patriots have won 13 straight in Foxborough. But, this is about the supporting casts and Denver looks like it has a little too much talent on both sides of the ball. Its never just one guy, Fox said. This is a team game. There are a lot of moving parts to offense, defense and the kicking game for that matter.
