We had been hoping that this morning we'd have evidence to contradict the assumption that Broncos QB Peyton Manning plays badly in cold weather and struggles against Tom Brady and the Patriots in New England. But no: Denver laid an egg big-time yesterday afternoon, losing to the Pats 43-21 in a game that wasn't even that close. No surprise that Twitter Nation exploded with commentary about the Brady-Manning match-up. Here's our top twenty countdown of memorable tweets, featuring photos from the game.
It's now official....Peyton Manning is OFFICIALLY Tom Brady's bitch!! Learn it! Know it!! Remember it!!!

Peyton Manning is better than Tom Brady. Stats say so. Brady just has Manning's number in head-to-head matchups.

So, what's the excuse for Peyton choking against Brady (again) this time? With a top 5 defense and the number 1 offense in the NFL?

Is it JUST me?
Or is waking up on a Monday EASIER Knowing Tom Brady established an UNQUESTIONABLE amount of dominance over Peyton Manning?

Brady, Belichick and the Pats have Manning's number. But they also usually play at home. Schedule makers make it tough on Peyton.

Manning v Brady: I don't care if you love either, but don't be ridiculous and say the other sucks. I love Peyton yet still respect Brady
