Bottom line - the blowout could have been worse. When the big moments happened in this game, the Patriots made all the plays and Manning once again came up short when it mattered, as he has always done in his career. If one were to chart big games/playoffs for Manning - you find that he is a below .500 Quarterback. Considering the level of talent the squads he's led have possessed, one can only come to the obvious conclusion - when the pressure rises - Peyton Manning NEVER plays his best.
Manning will eventually break all the records except the ones that matter most - wins and losses and Super Bowls. He doesn't have the heart or the toughness. And never will.
Tom Brady bests Manning again. It's like a broken record. On to the bye week for the Patriots.
