Tom Brady was a draft day afterthought as the 199th overall pick when he went to the New England Patriots in 2000. Peyton Manning was born into NFL royalty, destined to be the #1 overall pick and greatness on the Indianapolis Colts and then the Denver Broncos. This unlikely pairing of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning produced the greatest rivalry in NFL football history, and one that many feel shaped the modern NFL in many ways. The two star quarterbacks met head-to-head 17 times, with Brady holding an 11–6 edge over Manning. Manning did win the last three times they met in the AFC Championship Game, but Brady ultimately leads the rivalry with 6–2 in Super Bowl victories.
