INDIANAPOLIS -- You've probably heard it and wonder why he says it.

So, what's the story behind Peyton Manning and "Omaha"?

Former Colts receiver Reggie Wayne knows.

On NFL Network Sunday, Wayne said, "Omaha means, he's going the other way. If it's a run to the right, if it's dive right, 'Omaha' is gonna be dive left."

 

Sunday's game between the Broncos and the Patriots will be the 17th time Peyton Manning and Tom Brady have faced each other.

Brady has 11 victories. Eight were against the Colts and three were against the Broncos.

Neither has won on the other's home field in the post-season.
