Despite being rivals in the AFC for the better part of two decades, it appears to be nothing but love between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
The Patriots quarterback posted a selfie of the pair Wednesday with a caption that may surprise most New England fans.
“Spoiler alert… we were friends this whole time. Always great to see you Peyton!” Brady posted.
The Brady vs. Manning quarterback rivalry has long been noted, with the Patriots and the Colts becoming huge rivals in the 2000s due to the talent of both quarterbacks.
Brady and Manning faced off 17 times from Brady’ starting debut in 2001 to Manning’s retirement in 2015. Brady has come out on top 11 of those 17 times.
However, Manning’s two Super Bowl wins with the Colts and Broncos, respectively, came at the expense of the Patriots in the AFC Championship.
