Patriots' title defense ends with AFC Championship Game loss to Broncos

It will be Peyton Manning, not Tom Brady who will represent the AFC in Super Bowl 50, as his Broncos defeated the Patriots 20-18 in the AFC Championship Game.

With 17 seconds to go, Brady found Rob Gronkowski in the end zone to bring the Patriots within two, but on the two-point conversion, Brady was picked in the end zone.

The Patriots were able to limit Denver on the ground for the most part, but Manning saved one of his best games of the year for today. The future Hall-of-Fame quarterback went 17-of-32 for 176 yards and two touchdowns.

Brady finished the day 27-of-56 for 310 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

The Broncos await the winner of the Cardinals-Panthers game.
