Videos: Peyton Manning is Better Than Tom Brady...on SNL, and Here's Proof

Yeah, yeah, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady just won another Super Bowl, his fourth -- and Broncos QB (still, we hope) Peyton Manning's got just one. But Peyton has kicked the crap out of Tommy on Saturday Night Live -- one reason why he's been named as a guest on the show's 40th anniversary special, scheduled for February 15.

Need more proof? Below, see six gut-busting Peyton skits from SNL, including his amazing faux-United Way spot. Then, on the next page, check out Brady's spotty performances on the show. True, he's funny in the satirical sex-harassment clip shared here, but mainly because he's shown in his (bulging) underpants. But we prefer the recent Deflategate skit, in which Brady is hilarious -- since he's played by cast regular Taran Killam. Finally, we've included the promo for the special. Check it all out below.
