Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots
The Patriots and Broncos both came to the NFL from the now-defunct American Football League, where the two teams played each other multiple times a year. The rivalry between the two teams has crossed over into the NFL and has lasted for decades.
In recent years, the rivalry between future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning fueled the already intense rivalry between Denver and New England. After having spent most of his career with the Indianapolis Colts, Manning signed with the Broncos in 2012 and was their starting quarterback until he retired at the end of the 2015 season. Manning and Brady both regularly come up in discussions about the all-time greatest NFL quarterbacks.
Though you might expect the rivalry to fizzle out after Manning’s retirement, the Broncos strong defensive unit, led by players like Von Miller, provides enough of a storyline to keep things interesting between the two teams.
Ultimately, Brady beat out Manning in the QB rivalry: Brady won three games against Manning and the Broncos, and the Broncos won two. Denver holds the edge in the all-time rivalry between the two teams with 30 wins to New England’s 22.
