Peyton Manning and Tom Brady have faced each other 3 times in the postseason. Each time, the home team has won and gone on to WIN the Super Bowl.
DEION SANDERS SAYS HE’S SUITING UP TO PLAY IN PRO BOWL - Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders tweeted Monday that he will play in the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.
Sanders, who retired eight years ago, is the alumni team captain of Chuck Pagano’s Pro Bowl team in the event’s first year of its new format. Similar to the NHL’s format, the players will be split up by a fantasy draft rather than by conference affiliation.
Sanders also called for opposing team captain Jerry Rice to suit up Jan. 26 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
"Ladies and Gentlemen I am officially announcing "I WILL SUIT UP IN HAWAII" Please let @JerryRice know that a real captain leads by example!," Sanders tweeted.
Sanders, an eight-time Pro Bowl cornerback with the Falcons, 49ers and Cowboys, then went on to tweet Cardinals Pro Bowl CB Patrick Peterson that if he’s selected by Team Deion, he’ll need to wear a number other than Sanders’ 21.
The draft will be held Jan. 22. Offensive and defensive players with the most votes whose teams don’t make it past the divisional playoff round will serve as active player captains. (Photo: USA TODAY Sports)
KEN WHISENHUNT TO BE TITANS NEXT HEAD COACH - The Tennessee Titans have agreed to contract terms with San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt to become the teams’ new head coach, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports.
Whisenhunt, the Cardinals’ head coach from 2007 through 2012, also interviewed with Detroit and Cleveland for their head-coaching vacancies. The Lions were expected to offer Whisenhunt a contract to become their coach. But according to Rapoport, Whisenhunt decided to go with the Titans after hearing their pitch.
The Titans fired former head coach Mike Munchak eight days ago.

SEAHAWKS NOT SURPRISED TO SEE 49ERS AGAIN - Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll are not surprised that the Seattle Seahawks are seeing division rival San Francisco in the NFC championship game.
Both the Seahawks quarterback and coach said Monday they see the title matchup as a sign of just how good the NFC West has become.
Their comments came two days after Seattle advanced to the conference title game by knocking off the Saints 23-15 on Saturday.
Seattle and San Francisco split the two games with each winning at home. The Seahawks rolled to a 29-3 win in Week 2, and the 49ers kicked a late field goal for a 19-17 win in Week 14.
Seattle is unsure if Percy Harvin will be available for Sunday’s game. Harvin suffered a concussion on Saturday and Carroll said Wednesday and Thursday will be the key days. (Photo: Associated Press)
