DENVER - As the clock ticked to zeros amid a roaring sea of rattling orange, Peyton Manning took off his helmet and ran away from the celebration. Before even shaking his fist into the air, he shook hands with the defeated New England Patriots. As his Denver Broncos teammates danced into the raucous Sports Authority Field locker room after a dominating 26-16 victory in the AFC championship game, Manning walked quietly through the madhouse with the most unusual of posses. He was accompanied by his two brothers.

Although this is only the third postseason meeting between New England and Denver, it's the 15th time during the regular season or postseason that Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have been on opposite sides. The Patriots are 10-4 in those games, most of which came when Manning was playing for Indianapolis. Brady and Manning have faced each other - inasmuch as quarterbacks face each other - twice in AFC championship games, with each winning once. Terrifying tandem Bill Belichick and Brady have combined for 18 postseason victories, the most by any head coach-quarterback duo. And with 19 career postseason victories, Belichick is tied with Don Shula for the second-most in league history, one behind Tom Landry.

Like many storied rivalries from the past, the careers of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady will be forever linked. Although Brady is 10-4 in games against Manning's teams - Indianapolis and Denver - since the 2004 playoffs they have split four decisions. Brady is ahead, 2-1, in the playoffs, but they've split two AFC championship games. Sunday's conference title game will be the so-called “rubber match.” Some of the other great one-on-one sports rivalries: Martina Navratilova vs. Chris Evert: Two of the greatest women's tennis players ever played each other 80 times from 1973-88.

SEATTLE - Two brothers from western Washington share a unique perspective on the greatest quarterback rivalry in NFL history. Damon Huard was Tom Brady's backup in New England from 2001-03. His younger brother, Brock Huard, was Peyton Manning's backup in Indianapolis in 2002 and '03. So the AFC championship game in Denver on Sunday - the 15th meeting between Manning and Brady - has special meaning to the Huards, who grew up in Puyallup, Wash., a half-hour south of Seattle. The brothers will watch with great interest as Manning continues his quest for his second Super Bowl ring, and Brady tries to tie Joe Montana by winning a fourth.

If I hear one more time in a talk-radio discussion that Peyton Manning's legacy will be tainted if he can't win another Super Bowl, my head might explode. Peyton Manning has nothing left to prove. Period. His legacy is established at least as one of the best quarterbacks ever to play in the NFL. You can make an argument that he is the best. What he did during the regular season defies description. Fifty-five touchdown passes, 5,477 passing yards, a 115.1 quarterback rating, for a 37-year-old quarterback after his fourth neck surgery?

  So what is Peyton Manning signaling when he yells "Omaha! Omaha!" at the line of scrimmage? He joked about it this week when a reporter asked him to explain, saying it was a run call … or a pass call … or sometimes a play-action fake call, depending on which direction the wind is blowing, which way Denver's offense is heading and the jerseys the Broncos are wearing. But, really, what is he doing with that call? He sure barks it out enough, at least 40 times in the divisional playoff game against San Diego.

Peyton Manning isn't giving away many secrets as he prepares to go against Tom Brady for a 15th time, but the Denver Broncos quarterback did a little piling on this week when asked about New England's Bill Belichick. “Coach Belichick is the best coach that I've ever competed against,” Manning told reporters Wednesday. “I think it's safe to say he'll go down as the greatest NFL coach of all time.” Saying he respects Brady, Manning declined to get involved in ranking him and others in the pantheon of great quarterbacks.

If the storytellers have their way, Sunday in sports will be dedicated to neck surgeons of the world. Let's say that, in addition to Peyton Manning leading his Denver Broncos into the Super Bowl, Davis Love III is holding up a trophy on the 18th green of the Humana Challenge golf tournament at La Quinta. That might make it time to bronze some scalpels. Manning's neck surgery has been well-documented. So has his amazing comeback. Not so much Love's. A year ago at this event, Love went to the trainer's trailer and, complaining of neck pain, was put through the paces.

DENVER - Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was asked after Sunday's game about an ESPN report that his future beyond this season will be determined by the results of an off-season exam on his neck.  The report said Manning will go through a physical exam in March, as mandated by his contract, and if the exam shows the neck is stable, Manning plans to return to the Broncos for the 2014 season; if the exam shows an increased risk of injury, he...

Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady. Haven't we had this conversation before? Why, yes, we have. Many times, in fact. That's what happens when the two best quarterbacks of their era continue to play at a high level without any signs of dropping off. Sunday's AFC championship game between Manning's Denver Broncos and Brady's New England Patriots gives us yet another opportunity to ask one of our favorite questions: Which one would you rather have...
