I would have to favor Locker because of the matchup. otherwise, Peytons experience might carry the day, but Pittsburg is much tougher against the pass then NE was last year. I'd have to go with Locker. He may not crack into the "extra point" territory in your scoring system, but I doubt Peyton will either against Pit.

When it doubt play the guy that has proven what he can do. I would play Manning and never give it a second thought.
