Patriots fans, the season had to come down to this. After steamrolling the Chiefs last weekend in Foxboro, the Pats find themselves on the road to Mile High Stadium in Denver. The team standing between Tom Brady and a fifth Super Bowl ring? The Broncos and their quarterback, Peyton Manning. After what was, at times, a shaky season, Manning will be starting for the Broncos this Sunday. Meaning, football fans get at least one more chapter of the storied Tom Brady/Peyton Manning rivalry.
