It goes without saying that Week 16 of this year's NFL season will certainly go down as one of the more memorable weeks of the season.

From both number one seeds losing, to the NFC play-off picture closing it's doors, week 16 certainly saw a lot of crazy events unfold.

He didn't even play

Despite all the big headlines that emerged on the field on Sunday, arguably the biggest one may have come from a man who didn't even play.

With everyone from his brother Eli Manning to Peyton himself coming to deny the claims, he has now had support from a fairly unlikely source.

One of the great football rivalries is Manning and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the two have arguably been battling for the title of the greatest of all time for several years now.

But Brady - who has spent a fair bit of time amidst controversy himself claims to be in full support of one of his biggest rivals.

"Truthfully, I don’t put much into anything. I have a lot of friends, I have a lot of support, and he has the same. I’m a big fan and supporter of his, so that’s how I really feel about everything." - Brady on Manning

Throwing his support behind Manning, Brady still seems reluctant to go into any real detail on his thoughts on the newest NFL controversy.

Will they clash again?

Manning has been out of action for several weeks and actually missed what would have been a key match up with his old foe back in week 12.

There are heavy concerns over the future of Manning's career with a long string of injuries continually hanging over his head.
