The AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and Broncos on Sunday seems to be all about legacies. How will the featured characters in this drama, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, be viewed after a win or a loss?

Ron Borges of the Boston Herald joins Sports Tonight to talk legacies. Will Belichick be viewed any differently should he lose this game?

"Around here, probably not," Borges said, adding in a not-so-subtle reference to Spygate, "in the rest of the country, where they don't like him as much, people might say, 'As soon as they took his film collection away, he didn't win any [Super Bowls].'"
