BOSTON (CBS) – Albert Breer of the NFL Network called Toucher and Rich Tuesday morning to analyze Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and the Broncos.

It was another bad cold weather performance from Peyton Manning, and when the same happens over and over again it’s more than just a trend or a pattern – it becomes reality.

“Peyton Manning’s problems in the cold are very real. That exists and has existed for a long time,” said Breer.

“I think to a certain degree it’s just the pedigree of the quarterbacks. Tom Brady is a Big Ten quarterback who’s played the balance of his career in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Peyton Manning is an SEC quarterback who’s played the balance of his career indoors.”

Because of Peyton Manning’s chronic struggles in cold weather, Breer gives New England the upper hand come playoff time.

“I think the biggest advantage the Patriots have now is when you go back and look at the history of this rivalry, normally that regular season game would determine the difference between playing that playoff game indoors or outdoors.”

“Well now, if they meet in the playoffs either way chances are you’re going to have cold conditions. In theory, the Patriots would have the upper hand.”

Listen below for Breer’s take on the rest of the AFC, including which team has the best shot at challenging the Patriots and Broncos.
