Peyton Williams Manning (born March 24, 1976) is a retired American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League (NFL). A five-time league MVP, he played for the Indianapolis Colts for 14 seasons between 1998 and 2011, and then with the Denver Broncos for four seasons from 2012 to 2015. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl winner (XLI and 50), and also appeared in the game two other times, becoming the only quarterback to start the Super Bowl for two different franchises more than once each and the only starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different franchises.[1] He is a son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and older brother of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

Manning played college football for the University of Tennessee, leading the Tennessee Volunteers to the 1997 SEC Championship in his senior season. He was chosen by the Indianapolis Colts with the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. Manning’s playing career and statistics have ranked him among the greatest quarterbacks of all-time.[2] From 1998 to 2010, he led the Indianapolis Colts to eight (seven AFC South and one AFC East) division championships, two AFC championships, and a Super Bowl championship (XLI).

Manning is the first and only quarterback to achieve 200 career wins (regular and postseason),[3] his five NFL MVP awards are a league record,[4] he was the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLI, was named to a record 14 Pro Bowls, has 14 4,000-yard passing seasons (NFL record),[5][6] and is the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards (71,940) and touchdown passes (539).

In 2009, he was named the best player in the NFL,[5][6] and Fox Sports, along with Sports Illustrated, named him the NFL player of the decade for the 2000s. In May 2011, he underwent neck surgery to alleviate neck pain and arm weakness he dealt with during the previous few seasons before signing a five-year, $90 million contract extension with the Colts in July 2011. Manning had hoped to play in the 2011 season, but in September 2011 he underwent a second, and much more serious surgery: a level-one cervical fusion procedure. Manning had never missed an NFL game in his career, but was forced to miss the entire 2011 season. In March 2012, he was released by the Colts before signing with the Denver Broncos. Before the 2013 season had even finished, SI had named him their Sportsman of the Year.[7] He would lead the Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII, losing to the Seattle Seahawks 43-8 in a tough game. However, Manning would take his team to Super Bowl 50 in 2015 and, learning from their mistake just two seasons ago, would defeat the Carolina Panthers with a score of 24-10 due to an unbeatable defense. After the game, Manning would retire one month later in March 2016.

During a 2009 Monday Night Football game, Manning received the nickname “The Sheriff” from color commentator Jon Gruden due to his tendency to audible prior to the snap,[7] and he was one of the most recognizable and parodied players in the NFL.[8] Teams led by Manning typically utilized the hurry-up offense in place of the standard huddle.[9] (Wikipedia)
