The Denver Broncos are headed to Super Bowl 50, thanks to a 20-18 victory over the defending champion New England Patriots.

Denver QB Peyton Manning is now 6-11 in his vaunted series against four time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady, but 3-1 with the AFC title on the line.

Manning surpassed his boss, John Elway, as the oldest quarterback to take his team to the Super Bowl. The Broncos will play Arizona or Carolina, who met later in the NFC title game. The 17-for-32 performance wasn't one of his best, and Owen Daniels won't be on Manning's list of all-time favorite targets. But 17 completions was enough.
