Last Sunday night, I actually thought that the Patriots would make a comeback when they were down 24-0. Last year, when the Chargers hosted the Broncos, they were ahead 24-0 at halftime and we ended up losing against them 24-35! It was horrible to witness as a Chargers fan.
When I was watching the Patriots/Broncos game and they were ahead by that amount, I had a flashback and thought, "I bet the Patriots can come back! The Broncos deserve to see how that feels!" Turns out, the game was awesome because Tom Brady pulled it off. I thought Brady was the better QB because of his ability to comeback. Manning was at a disadvantage because of his hurt ankle. He is tough, but I think his injuries are going to keep haunting him.
