The countdown to Manning vs. Brady round 14 continues.

The Sports Tonight crew sat down to discuss the history of the Manning-Brady rivalry.

For the most part, it appears that the Belichick-led Patriots have had Manning's number throughout his Hall of Fame career. Does Peyton Manning fear Bill Belichick? Andy Hart believes that it might be a factor. 

"I don't know if he does (during the press conference), but I know he will when he steps on the field when it's a little bit cold and he's a little uncomfortable." said Hart, "It's funny to say this about a Hall of Fame quarterback, you usually say this about a rookie. I think it's key for him to get off to a good start and march down the field." 

When it comes to the rivalry between Brady and Manning, the Sports Tonight crew compares it to one of the best rivalries of all time, Magic vs. Bird.

"It's just like Bird and Magic because there are championships on the line virtually every time they play." added Hart, "You have the Bird/Magic difference, where Brady is the supermodel, the high life, and the Costa Rican compounds and all that.  Manning's the dorky guy that his wife lays out his clothes and studies football all year." 

How will Round 14 go between Manning and Brady?
