Game day has finally arrived and a trip to Super Bowl 50 is on the line this afternoon when the New England Patriots take the field against the Denver Broncos for the AFC Championship.

This will be a rematch of the 2013 AFC title game that was won by the Broncos 26-16. It is also the second meeting between the two teams this season as Denver beat the Pats in a regular season Sunday night game 30-24 in overtime.

Much of the talk this week has centered on the match-up between quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. This will be the 4th time the two have faced each other in the postseason with each winning twice. In those four games Brady has posted the better quarterback rating with a 85.1 compared to Manning's 74.8.

When Brady steps on the field to start the game he will tie the conference record for AFC title appearances with 10. He becomes just the third player to reach that mark joining Gene Upshaw and George Blanda.
