Superstar Quarterbacks To Duel In Broncos-Pats Clash

Superstar Quarterbacks To Duel In Broncos-Pats Clash

Washington (AFP) – Superstar quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady square off Sunday when Manning leads Denver into New England in an NFL clash that could see Broncos receiver Wes Welker facing his old team.

“It’s always a great matchup,” Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio said of the Manning-Brady duel. “You’re talking about two of the premier quarterbacks in the league.”

Brady has the best winning percentage in the NFL’s modern era and is at plus-101 for his career (143-42) while Manning is third overall in winning percentage and plus-92 (163-71).

Manning has the Broncos playing at a high level this season and Denver will be eager to build on their 27-17 victory over Kansas City last week. They handed the Chiefs their first defeat of the season and the two teams are now neck-and-neck atop the AFC West division at 9-1.

Manning played on a sore ankle against the Chiefs but completed 24-of-40 passes for 323 yards and wasn’t sacked once by a Chiefs defense that went into the contest leading the league in sacks.

Welker left the game in the fourth quarter with a concussion, but was back at practice on Wednesday in a sign that he could be cleared to play against a team where he was Brady’s top target for six seasons.

Welker notched 672 receptions and 37 touchdowns playing for New England, reaching the 1,000-yard plateau in five seasons.

“He’s a tough guy so he’s played through everything,” Brady said of his former teammate. “This is a big game for both teams so you have to expect their best players. I’m sure all those guys will be ready to go.”

Welker has slotted smoothly into the Broncos offense and has 61 receptions for 648 yards.

    Even if poverty is now relative rather than absolute, it is no less bitter when unsatisfied wants are iPhones instead of water and food.

  • Defend Liberty

    Since liberty is defined as the absence of coercion, its effects are only visible through the goods, services, and other manifestations of the individual potential unleashed by it.

  • Igor Shafarevich

    Since liberty depends upon morality, liberty cannot survive where majority opinion favours the immoral plunder of some in the names of fairness, progress, and social justice for others.

  • Chumba Wumba

    Liberty empowers us to choose our goals, the efforts we undertake, and how to adjust our ways when confronted with that we couldn’t foresee.

  • Socialism is Evil. Organized.

    While the collectivist notion of a top-down designed society runs counter to science, the individualist conception aligns with integral calculus and atomic theory in the sense that the whole is best described through the individual parts.

    Continued rot in the roots of Western morals, customs, and traditions, may ultimately topple the oaks of liberty, prosperity, and civilization which have grown upon them.
