Patriots Praise Manning’s Neck Surgery Recovery
" FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia didn’t hesitate Tuesday when asked about Peyton Manning’s arm strength three years after major neck surgery.

“I think Peyton Manning’s arm strength is just fine,” Patricia said on a conference call, as the Patriots began to prepare for a visit by Manning and the Denver Broncos Sunday. “I think it’s pretty evident in his play that he makes all the throws necessary in order to score them a lot of points.”

Manning clearly had trouble throwing when he began his comeback and people have offered all kinds of opinions on him since.

“You can definitely see him push the ball downfield,” Patricia said. “He has some extremely fast receivers and big receivers that can push the ball, push the routes vertically. Obviously (Emmanuel) Sanders — you can really see him take off downfield and the ball get down to those guys.”

Overall, the Patriots have had success against Manning in his days with both the Indianapolis Colts and Broncos.

Manning has gone 8-14 against New England — 6-12 in the regular season and 2-2 in the playoffs "
