Facepalm Tom Was Understandably Sadder Than Confetti Peyton (GIFs)

Understandably, Tom Brady wasn't in the mood to attempt a high-five in the final moments of the AFC Championship Game. With his New England Patriots just minutes from defeat in Denver, Brady was bummed. He was so bummed that he expertly executed one of the universal signs for disappointment and frustration: The facepalm.

While Brady was left face in palm on the Patriots' sideline, Manning was on the field at Mile High closing out the Broncos 26-16 win. Manning racked up 400 passing yards and two touchdown passes while completing 32 of 43 pass attempts to improve to 2-1 against Brady in AFC title games.

Once the Super Bowl berth was clinched in Denver, the confetti began falling. Peyton was the calm center of the celebration.
