Mitch Perry Report for 1.25.16 – Santa Clara will now be Peyton’s Place

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

San Mateo is located approximately halfway between San Francisco and Santa Clara, the site of Super Bowl 50 in 13 days. It’s also the hometown of Tom Brady, generally considered (after last year’s Super Bowl) The Greatest Of All Time (GOAT), when it comes to ranking NFL quarterbacks in history. He wasn’t yesterday, though, was he? There are many, many reasons to cherish the Denver Broncos upset over Brady’s New England Patriots last night. One that comes to mind this morning is the…

Peyton Manning has at least one more game in him. With many expecting the future Hall of Fame quarterback to retire, he led the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl with a 20-18 thriller over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. Manning threw two first-half touchdown passes to Owen Daniels, sandwiched around a 1-yard plunge by New England’s Steven Jackson to lead 14-6. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who had made 523 consecutive extra points, missed…

Patriots have more weapons than earlier meeting with Denver

in Sports/Top Headlines by

On November 29, the New England Patriots came into Denver to face the Broncos sporting a 10-0 record. The Broncos were 8-2 and looking to post a signature win on an uncertain season. Denver knocked the Patriots from the ranks of the unbeaten, 30-24 in overtime on that day. In today’s AFC Championship Game, they will try the same formula. Quarterback Brock Osweiler, in his second career start, was up against the legendary Tom Brady. He had taken over the…

Peyton Manning to face Tom Brady for one more shot at glory

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Peyton Manning gets to face his biggest nemesis for one more shot at glory. Get ready for Brady-Manning XVII. The NFL’s only five-time MVP earned one more and possibly final game against his rival by leading the Denver Broncos to a come-from-behind 23-16 win over Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers on a blustery Sunday. That set up an AFC championship game in Denver against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. What a fitting feature to an 18th season…

Broncos a rare home underdog; Cardinals could pull upset in Carolina

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Odds makers have installed the New England Patriots as a 3-point favorite on the road against the Denver Broncos in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. In the NFC, the Carolina Panthers are favored by the same spread against the Arizona Cardinals in Charlotte. All four contestants in Sunday’s games have overcome the odds to win as underdogs in the recent past. Can it happen again? Over the last decade, only two underdogs have won the AFC Championship. In 2006 the Pittsburgh…

Broncos top Steelers, await Patriots in AFC Championship Game

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Denver Broncos became the last team to join the NFL’s final four after they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Denver, 23-16 on Sunday. In a game featuring two eventual Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Denver’s Peyton Manning got the best of Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger, playing on an injured shoulder from last week’s Wild Card game win over Cincinnati, threw for 339 yards and no touchdowns. He clearly missed his favorite target, All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown, who amassed 1,834…

Dolphins were looking ahead before Sunday’s win over Patriots

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Even before the Miami Dolphins took the field on Sunday against the New England Patriots, they were already thinking about next year. With the Patriots’ listless performance against Miami on Sunday, they might be accused of thinking about the next two weeks. But that was not the case. New England’s uninspired play, coupled with a strange game plan, led to a 20-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. Like often throughout their run of greatness, the Patriots…
