Sunday will be Manning's 26th career postseason game, which is the fifth-most for any National Football League player and second only to Brady for a quarterback.
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski faces reporters before an NFL football practice, Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016, in Foxborough, Mass. The Patriots are to play the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship on Sunday in Denver.
Thanks to Bleacher Report, we now have access to this personal voicemail from Eli to Manning, where the youngest Manning informs his older brother how to dethrone Mr. Brady (Just in case: This is a joke). It's one of those games where you're like in the first half, you know what, if it's close and you get a good.
You can hear the entire exchange in the audio player below. Instead, his point was all about trying to send a message with some questionable early shots. So it is no surprise that Gronkowski is upset with Broncos players for suggesting that the best way to stop him is to go after him around the knees. Just don't mention that in Denver. The other? You guessed it. Kanell.
