6:08 pm
if he can place or show in a series of states, surge into a third place in iowa and then ride that momentum into new hampshire, that could be a ticket to the big lesion. the flip side of that, the opportunity that it presents for any of the governors. christie, kasich, bush, if they overperform, that could provide a boost going into new josh: then there's the democratic side of things. hillary clinton is the strong frontrunner nationally, while sanders has a firm group atop the polls in new hampshire. and it's worth asking this question. all right, so you're probably wondering what that question was. i asked rick klein what would happen if sanders were to win iowa and new hampshire, and he said basically that the democratic party would have a big freak out. but we're going to see what happens, we have two weeks to go before the iowa caucuses and the new hampshire primary is three

6:12 pm
jennifer: brady versus manning, in denver. >> it's rare that two individuals become the face of what is truly a team sport. but brady versus manning has become an iconic matchup. it's hard to talk about one without at least pensioning the other. tom brady and peyton manning will meet for the 17th time with a trip to the super bowl on the line. >> i just think they're both great players, belichick is the greatest coach of all time. but i think if you look at the overall body of work, it's not even comparable. brady is superior. reporter: sports radio talk show host pete shepherd is predicting a double digit patriots win on sunday. the numbers would tend to bear that out. brady is 11-5 against manning, after winning their games this weekend, both men tried to play down the personal rivalry. >> i'll be talking about them all wednesday.
6:13 pm
other for a long time, and being in the same profession for all these years and being at different events, we have a good friendship. reporter: the matchup numbers favor brady. there is some bad news, while brady has won about 10% of his games outside of denver, he's 2-6 at mile high stadium. >> great matchup, giving the extra edge to brady as usual being a new england fan. but i hope it's a great game and looking forward to going to the super bowl. >> it's great, it's been a rivalry for a long time and they're both playing strong at the end of the season, i don't think anybody could have predicted that. >> they will always be linked together, they're both hall of fame quarterbacks, it's been one and one for the last 10 years, just brady is better, it's that simple. >> while brady leads the total head to head matchups, the post season between the two is dead even with two wins apiece.

tom: right now there's a gathering in manchester for keeping the dream alive dinner, to honor the work of martin
6:17 pm
jennifer: earlier today at this unity breakfast the crowd was challenged to live the dream. >> the question i have for you is simply this. how will you honor the principles dr. king lived and died for? jennifer: shelley walcott emceed the event. mike: you can see clearly the snow on the roads earlier today, slush, snow and now the road conditions have improved. the only problem, many damp spots will ten to ice over quickly with the sun now down and temperatures sub freezing in a big way. speaking of snow, take a look at the snow stats as we update you for the numbness concord to date, a foot of snow has fallen. well below the average of 27.6 inches of snow. last year to date we had 22.0. but keep in mind, some of that,
6:18 pm
so we're kind of on par with what we had last december through mid january to date. and keep in mind right at the end of january last year is when everything turned upside down in terms of flipping the snow numbers way up there, and that may start to happen this may. a lot of changes could happen between now and then. right now snow showers across a good part of the white mountains, they'll tend to wind down later tomorrow. but on and off between now and then there could be an additional two, three, four inches in the highest elevations. and maybe a dusting to an inches where. temperature wise, lining up in the teens low 20's. the winds are busy out of the west northwest. so that's going to continue to provide a wind chill in the single digits at or below zero. a good part of the evening and below zero statewide later on tonight. as for the winds, steady between 5 and 15 miles per hour. in some cases close to 20. but the wind gusts are higher than that and that's putting the wind chill factor in the single digits to around 10. so we do have bitter cold air on
6:19 pm
nothing in terms of record setters, but we do have the chill that is all over not only new hampshire but the rest of the northeast. in terms of the gusts, 15 to 25 miles per hour. notice in time during the day tomorrow they get even higher, could see gusts over 40 at times, then on wednesday still breezy, but not as gusty as what we'll see tomorrow. a lot of cold air, not only through new england, but back through the great lakes, midwest, digging down into portions of the southeast. it gets cut off in portions of the rockies, they're going to actually see unseasonably warm air a good part of the week, possibly into this weekend. for the big afc title game between the pats and broncos. could be right now in the 40's, while many in the northeast are dealing with some snow. snow in the lee of the great lakes and across the mountains will tend to dry up later tomorrow afternoon. and temperatures line up near 10 north, lower 20's south. the wind chill factor much lower
6:20 pm
tonight near zero north and lower teens at best in southern new hampshire. so again windy and frigid tonight, we've got sunshine in parts tomorrow, over southern new hampshire. more in the way of snow showers up north, and slightly milder but still chilly wednesday. thurgs okay. friday looks good. the next storms that we're tracking will be a nor'easter on the coast, the impact way too early to call. but we'll watch it every step of the way. tom: a trip to denver. >> yes, a rivally game there, and one closer to home today.
6:21 pm
there are two democratic visions for regulating wall street. one says it's okay to take millions from big banks and then tell them what to do. my plan -- break up the big banks, close the tax loopholes, and make them pay their fair share. then we can expand health care to all, and provide universal

no. will they begin to play by the rules if i'm president? i'm bernie sanders and i approve this message. >> for the 17th time it will be brady versus manning, patriots against the broncos. the future half hall of famers square off in sunday's afc championship game, their fifth all-time playoff meeting. the record for the previous four all square, two wins for tom, two wins for peyton. it was the broncos who handed the pats their first loss of the season back in november, 30-24 in overtime. but peyton manning sat that one out due to injury, and in his weekly conference call today head coach belichick was asked how different the matchup would be this time around. >> whatever it is, it is.
6:23 pm
we always do, and be ready to play it out. there will are some matchups that will be a little different. but that's usually the way it is. >> both teams are 13-4 overall. patriots are the early favorites, favored by three and a half points. celtics will try to make it four straight wins when they take on the mavericks in dallas tonight. boston is coming off saturday's two-point win over the wizards, game time there is 8:30. u.n.h. women played a home game this afternoon against the black bears from maine, first half maine out to the early lead. bodine had eleven points. pogue a strong move, and simpson

u.n.h. down three there. elizabeth belanger had a team high 17 for u.n.h., but liz wood led all scorers with 23. and maine wins it 62-52. the monarchs were swept by the norfolk admirals over the weekend, good games though. they lost saturday night's game in overtime and then lost in a shootout on sunday. manchester is in second place in the division, just one point behind adirondack where they play three times this weekend. >> like you said it's a big stretch for us, these are all in division games for us, like eight or nine in a row. so we've got three against a tough opponent and we'll be getting ready for that. >> we'll get ready for pats-broncos. jennifer: right now on wmur.com we're headed to hollis for mansion monday, take a tour of a house with a heated pool, gym, and four-car garage complete with a special car washing station. that's a first, i think, for mansion monday.
