Randy Moss talks Tom Brady vs Peyton Manning

Sunday night, NFL fans sat down to watch another big clash between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as the Denver Broncos travelled to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots.

It ended up being a dominant victory for the Patriots as Brady and Tight-end Rob Gronkowski shone in a 22 point victory.

The Patriots moved to the top of the AFC Conference rankings with the win over the Broncos and the old argument was reignited once again.

It has been many many years now since the question of who is better, Brady or Manning was first asked but every time the two collide, it re-emerges.

This time it was the turn of one of the NFL's Wide Receiving legends to try and answer the question.


Former Patriot Randy Moss was on hand with FOX Sports to attempt to tackle the biggest Quarterback debate of our time.

Arguably one of the best Wide Receivers of all time, Moss spent three years with the Patriots in which he had the chance to link up with Brady.

"You know I'm biased, I broke a record with Tom, I'm going with Tom Brady." - Randy Moss on Brady v Manning

So speaking from his heart Moss backs Brady in the battle of the Quarterbacks, but he's not 100% convinced.

Despite showing his allegiances with his former team-mate, when asked "Who is better for the longevity of a Wide Receiver?" He went a different way.

"He is willing to work with the young Wide Receivers, the 4th and 5th round picks and work with them because one day, he may need to count on them"

Showing an example of the leadership qualities Peyton has, Moss sends a big statement about who is best for a Wide Receiver's career.

"I think as far as expanding your career, I'm going with Peyton."

Maybe in the long run

Moss makes some good points about what Manning can offer in terms of more than just accurate passes, but lets hope he's speaking in the long run.

I hope he was speaking about the long term future because Peyton surely didn't offer much on Sunday.

Incredibly Peyton threw for 438 yards and hit two touchdown passes, but uncharacteristically for the future hall of famer, he threw two interceptions.

At times, the Patriots defense - which has had its fair share of criticism this season ran riot over a Broncos offense that has seemed unstoppable at times this season.

As both teams entered the game with four game winning streaks, it was the Patriots who moved onto five out of five as they now enter their bye week.

On paper the Broncos next two games should two easy victories, but given the events of Sunday, that may not be the case.

Next they face a trip to the 0-8 Oakland Raiders who put in an impressive performance in their narrow loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Next up comes a trip to arguably the most unpredictable team in the NFL as they visit the St Louis Rams who hold wins over the Seahawks and defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium
