The Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning didn’t waste any time moving on to next week’s opponent. 

Manning, who will go against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots for the 17th time, attempted to follow the script after Sunday’s 23-16 win to advance to the AFC Championship game. 

"To quote Bill Belichick, we’ll be on to New England," Manning told CBS Sports reporter Tracy Wolfson

Brady and Manning have played each other 16 times, which the Patriots quarterback has won 11 times. It will be the fourth time the two quarterbacks go head-to-head for the AFC championship.
