The Denver Broncos are going to the Super Bowl! They looked phenomenal while dominating the New England Patriots 26-16 in the AFC Championship game.
Broncos QB Peyton Manning was sensational, throwing for 400 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. WR Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 134 yards and one touchdown while TE Julius Thomas caught eight balls for 85 yards.
After punting on their first drive, the Broncos then scored on six straight possesions to take a 23-3 lead in the fourth quarter. Patriots QB Tom Brady tried to rally the Patriots with a touchdown pass and run in the fourth quarter, but the Broncos would not be denied.
Brady threw for 277 yards and one touchdown in the loss. WR Julian Edelman caught 10 of those passes for 89 yards and one touchdown.
The Broncos are headed to the Super Bowl for the first time since they won back-to-back championships in 1997 and 1998.
