Manning, Broncos to the Super Bowl

Compared to the rest of his accomplishments, Peyton Manning's big-game reputation is rather lacking. Not that you would have noticed Sunday, as his Denver Broncos handled the visiting New England Patriots 26-16, earning Manning (32-of-43, 400 yards, two pass TDs) a trip to his third Super Bowl. Manning is 1-1 in the Big Game, and another win could send him even higher up the all-time QB charts. Meanwhile, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick were denied trips to their sixth Super Bowl together, and one must wonder if they'll ever make it back.
