This story is hitting the delivery late, but still heating up! Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are going to the AFC Championship game hosting the New England Patriots! Not only did the Bronco’s advance to the Championship game (Sunday, Jan. 24, 3:05pm EST – CBS) they will also host the Patriots at their own Mile High Stadium – Sports Authority Field, finishing the season as the #1 contender! Home field advantage can play a major part in playoff games in both terms of momentum and simply hearing play calls. Also, backing up to after the Broncos beat the Steelers in the Divisional playoff game, they trolled rap mogul Snoop Dogg on Twitter?! Plus, Snoop and Pats’ QB Tom Brady may have been secretly conversing about the Playoffs, check out the pic directly below?!
Looking backwards, Manning came through late in the AFC Divisional Playoff game and ‘hit his stride’ against the Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday Jan 17, 2016) to help bring the Denver Broncos to a 23-16 win! After the Bronco’s turned up on a clutch forced fumble poke at about the ten minutes left mark, they went onto their first touchdown (plus two point conversion) of the game to go ahead 20-13 leaving exactly three minutes. The Broncos stuffed the Steelers on the next position, sacking Steelers’ QB Big Ben (Roethlisberger) on the fourth down! Then the Bronco’s and Steelers respectively exchanged field goals (23-13…23-16)! The Steelers last ditch attempt at an onside kick failed with about 16 seconds left…Right after the win, the Broncos trolled (Steelers fan) Snoop Dogg; video directly below (courtesy Twitter). Check out more after the jump too…

Looking forwards, the Bronco’s will play their toughest foe, the Patriots, and must prepare for them both physically and mentally. Pats’ quarterback Tom Brady is one of the quickest throwing, and Pats’ tight end (TE) Rob Gronkowski is one of the best big receivers in the game. You have to figure that Brady will probably establish some sort of sideshow conversation playing up to Mile High showdown, but we may get lucky if he may not. Brady was given a timeout lol and a four-game suspension for his shenanigans with under-inflated footballs at the AFC Championship game one year ago.
