Here are a few worrying facts:
Brady owns a career 2-6 record in Denver. That’s right—over the course of his 16 years in the NFL, Brady has emerged victorious from Denver just twice.
Zooming out, Brady is only 5-6 against the Broncos. In fact, the Broncos are the only team that Brady has a losing record against.
In the playoffs specifically, Brady is 0-2 in Denver. Champ Bailey and the Broncos dealt Brady his first career playoff loss in the 2005 Divisional Round, and then Manning got the last laugh over his foe in the 2013 AFC Championship Game a few years ago.
Hopefully, Brady and the Patriots turn the tide on Sunday afternoon. This is the fifth straight AFC Championship Game appearance for the Patriots, but it won’t matter much if they don’t advance to Super Bowl 50.
Stay tuned on Musket Fire tomorrow morning as we brighten the mood and bring you six reasons to be excited for Sunday’s showdown.
