No. 1 rival
Brady could never seem to through a week without hearing a debate about whether he or the Colts' Peyton Manning was the best quarterback in the league. The Colts and Patriots did match up a couple times in the playoffs to add fuel to those debates. One example was on Jan. 16, 2005, when Brady completed two-thirds of his passes against the Colts to kick off the 2005 postseason. He was 18 for 27 for 144 yards and a touchdown pass in the victory. On Nov. 5, 2006 (pictured), Manning and the Colts beat Brady's Patriots 27-20 in Foxborough.
