Peyton Manning with his Super Bowl Rings


The case can easily be made that Peyton Manning is probably the best regular-season quarterback to have ever played in the NFL. If there is any doubt, one just has to look at his records and achievements in the regular season. The five-time NFL MVP stands all by himself at the top of the mountain even though Aaron Rodgers is hot on his heels with four of his own. Still, Manning was a big deal coming out of college and was considered by many scouts, experts, and analysts as the number one pick in his draft class.


Unfortunately for Manning though, his regular season success could not translate into a bigger haul of Lombardi trophies. In eighteen seasons in the NFL, Manning and his teams missed the playoffs only three times. His career has seen him set numerous NFL records while his list of awards and honors is even longer. Having made it to the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame, let us now take a look at the rings Manning won during his time in the league.


How many Super Bowls did Peyton Manning win?

In his 18-year career, Manning won a total of 2 Super Bowls. His first Lombardi trophy came in 2006 at Super Bowl XLI when he was the signal caller for the Indianapolis Colts. By this time, Manning was already a two-time NFL MVP and had led his team to the playoffs almost every year. He won his second ring in 2015, but this time as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos.


Super Bowl XLI - Indianapolis Colts (2006)

Heading into the playoffs, the Colts had a 12-4 record and needed to win 4 games to achieve their goal. En route to the Super Bowl, Manning came up against his most popular rival in Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. At one time the Patriots were ahead by a margin of 21-3, but Manning led the Colts charge in the second half to come from behind and win the game with a final score that read 38-34.


Super Bowl XLI saw the number three-seeded Colts from the AFC take on the number one-seeded Chicago Bears from the NFC. While the Colts had to get through the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and the New England Patriots, the Bears had to go through the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints.


The Colts found themselves behind early on in the game and were trailing the Bears by a score of 14-6 after the first quarter. However, Manning had a good enough game as he completed 25-of-38 passes for 247 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Eventually, the final score was 29-17 in favor of the Colts and the former quarterback won his first and only Super Bowl MVP.


Super Bowl 50 - Denver Broncos (2015)

Once again Peyton Manning led another AFC team to the playoffs with a 12-4 regular season record, but this time around, the Broncos had the number 1 seed. That proved to be a big plus as they not only got a home-field advantage but also a bye in the Wild Card round. In between their path toward glory stood the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots. The Broncos defeated the Steelers by a score of 23-16 and the Patriots 20-18.


Being the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, this year was a very special one. The Broncos were up against the number one seed from the NFC, the Carolina Panthers whose regular season record stood at 15-1. The Panthers led by Cam Newton defeated the Seattle Seahawks and then the Arizona Cardinals to set up the title clash against the Colts.


Super Bowl 50 pitted the number one offense of the Panthers against the number one defense of the Broncos only the fourth time that had happened in the history of the NFL. The game turned out to be a defensive one as the Broncos took an early lead and never looked back. The final score was 24-10.


This victory also gave Peyton Manning his 200th overall win including the regular season and the postseason making him the first quarterback to do so. Moreover, this game would turn out to be the last game of Peyton Manning’s highly decorated career as he would announce his retirement just over a month later.


How many Super Bowls did Peyton Manning go to?

Along with the 2 Super Bowl victories in 2006 and 2015, Manning reached the final game on 2 more occasions. Super Bowl XLIV in 2009 was played between Peyton Manning’s Colts and Drew Brees’ New Orleans Saints. The game was neck and neck at the end of three quarters as the Colts were leading 17-16. However, the fourth quarter belonged to the Saints as they scored 15 unanswered points to take the victory 31-17.


Super Bowl XLVIII was Manning’s second year with the Broncos and they faced the Seattle Seahawks in the summit clash. While the contest was between both the number one teams from their respective conferences, the Seahawks flat-out controlled this game from the start till the end. Leading 22-0 at the half and 36-0 before the Broncos could get points on the board, the Seahawks coasted to a 43-8 landslide victory.
