February 7, 2010 – Manning led the Colts back to the Super Bowl, this time against the New Orleans Saints. Manning completed 31 of 45 passes for 333 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

September 5, 2013 – Denver defeated visiting Baltimore 49-27 in the NFL season opener thanks to Manning completing 27 of 42 passes for 462 yards and seven touchdowns, matching the NFL record for touchdown throws in a single game.

February 2, 2014 – The Broncos are pounded 43-8 by Seattle in Super Bowl 48 at New York in Manning’s first championship game with Denver and after a season in which he led the team to scoring and yardage records. Manning threw two first-half interceptions and was confounded by Seattle’s league-best defensive unit.

February 7, 2016 – In the final game of his career, Manning completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards and was intercepted once but carefully managed Denver’s defense-dominated side to a 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, bringing Manning his second career NFL title. Only Manning and Denver’s John Elway won Super Bowl titles in their final games.
