Peyton Manning at his best for Broncos

1/19/2014

Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning played in his fourth AFC Championship Game on Sunday when he led the Denver Broncos past the New England Patriots 26-16.

Manning won two of three AFC Championship Games while with the Colts. His best performance in a AFC Championship Game was Sunday with the Broncos. He was 32-of-43 for 400 yards, two touchdowns and he managed to avoid being sacked. The fine folks at ESPN Stats & Information said Manning completed 7-of-8 passes for 186 yards on throws of at least 15 yards downfield. He was a perfect 8-of-8 for 116 yards and two touchdowns when using play action.

Manning’s worst AFC Championship game happened to also be against the Patriots. He was only 23-of-47 for 237 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in the game played Jan. 18, 2004.
