Peyton Manning clowns Patriots during Monday Night Football broadcast
Even though future Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning hasn’t played in the NFL for the last handful of seasons, the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos legend still hasn’t forgotten about his numerous battles with the heralded New England Patriots.
With Manning and former Patriots and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers signal-caller Tom Brady forming a friendship over the years as these two icons went at it on the field on more than a few occasions, the former has absolutely no problem letting the latter have it from time to time.
Even when Brady isn’t around, Manning just can’t resist taking a jab at the Patriots, a team that has found itself in some serious hot water several different times in recent memory. Most recently, Manning utilized his time on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast to poke some fun at the Patriots (via NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano).
Peyton Manning is on fire. He's talking about coach-to-QB headset communication. The comms get cut at :15 on the play clock.
“Now certain teams, maybe in the Northeast, they don’t cut their lines."

During his illustrious professional playing career, Manning reached a total of four Super Bowls while winning a pair of titles. He reached two Super Bowls with both the Colts and Broncos while winning a title as a member of each franchise. On the other hand, Brady reached a whopping nine Super Bowls over the course of two decades as a member of the Patriots while infamously bringing six titles back to New England.
Brady has since taken a page out of Manning’s book, though, leaving his longtime franchise and is currently in the midst of his first go-round with the aforementioned Buccaneers.
With Manning slated to make his way to Canton sometime in the near future, Brady is still going strong at 43 years old as the Buccaneers are an even 1-1 on the year in 2020.
