Twitter Nation Thinks Broncos, Peyton Can't Beat Patriots, Brady: Top 20 Tweets

The Broncos' victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's NFL playoffs game hasn't convinced many folks that Denver and Peyton Manning can defeat the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots and reach another Super Bowl.

Oddsmakers have made the Patriots the favorites in this weekend's AFC championship game, even though they'll be on the road.

Likewise, pundits such as ESPN's Michael Wilbon see little chance of Manning, who looked erratic at times during the Steelers contest, besting the Golden Boy one more time.

And citizens of Twitter Nation seem to be heavily backing New England, too.

Here are twenty tweets that exemplify the situation — although the last one offers a ray of hope for Broncos fans.
