Patriots vs. Broncos Details
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.
Historic Patriots vs. Broncos Games
Brady’s First Game Against Manning as a Bronco: The Brady vs. Manning Rivalry came to Denver for the first time in the 2012 season (Peyton’s first with the Broncos). The Patriots took a 31-7 lead into the fourth quarter, but Manning led a comeback push to make the game interesting. The Broncos came within 10 points but lost the game 31-21. The win gave Brady a 9-4 record all time against Manning.
Brady vs. Manning: One Last Time: The 2016 AFC Championship game was the last meeting between two legendary quarterbacks. Both teams had won their divisions during the regular season. Manning and the Broncos scored on the opening drive, and Manning had two touchdown passes on the day. The Broncos’ defense stole the show with four sacks and two interceptions on Brady. They stopped a Patriots’ potential game-tying two point conversion at the end of the game, and the Broncos won 20-18. The Broncos went on to play in and win Super Bowl 50, which was the final game of Manning’s career.
The Broncos and Pats play in different divisions of the AFC. The Broncos play in the AFC West and the Patriots play in the East. The NFL has a rotating scheduling system that means teams not in the same division won’t play each other every year, but the two teams did play against each other for nine seasons in a row between 1995 and 2003.
The Broncos play their home games at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Patriots play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts (about 30 miles from Boston and 20 miles from Providence, RI).
