The Denver Broncos have earned an eighth trip to the Super Bowl after a 20-18 victory over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game. Their quarterback Peyton Manning finished with 176 yards in the air and two touchdowns, but it was his defense that kept Brady off balance the whole game snatching two interceptions from him and dropping him four times.
Most sports pundits assumed this will be the last time Manning and Brady will meet in the playoffs, having met four times before. Manning has had more body parts repaired than Victor Stone and is in the sunset of his career at age 39. He faces the winner of the Panthers and Cardinals in Super Bowl 50 in two weeks.
It was as much a win for Tom Brady haters as much as it was for Broncos fans, as the Patriots poster boy has found himself in cheating controversies throughout the years. So you know Twitter had a ball painting the ubiquitous “Crying Jordan” face on Brady and his coach Bill Belicheck. Check out the funniest post-game memes below.
