I know that technically a decade should start with the year one, but most people tend to think of decades as starting with the zero year. So the 2000's actually ended last year, and the 10's started this year, making this the first Brady-Manning contest of the decade, not the last.

A decade is just 10 years. You can start it whenever you want.

Now if you refer to a decade as the 201st decade, then you are talking about some thing that should start at year one.

And by this accounting, any matchup is both the first and last of a decade ;)
