Colts CB Vontae Davis: “We prepared really hard for Tom Brady”

It's sometimes easy to mix up Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. They're around the same age, they're quarterbacks and they're really good at football. But it was a bit odd to hear Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis accidentally refer to Manning as Brady during a post-game interview with Michele Tafoya late Sunday night on NBC. If you stay with the clip, you get to see a giddy Costas deliver a line at Davis's expense with the utmost glee. 

In Davis' defense, he faced Brady six times while he was a member of the Miami Dolphins between 2009 and 2011, and this was the first time he ever had to prepare for Manning. Not crazy to have a brain fart there, but still weird considering the special circumstances of Sunday night's game.
