With the victory, Manning became the first NFL quarterback with 200 career wins — 186 in the regular season and 14 in the postseason — and tops Brett Favre with 199 for the most victories by an NFL quarterback.
He completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards in the win at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara to become the oldest starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl.
The previous record was held by Broncos general manager John Elway, who was 38 when the team won Super Bowl XXXIII to complete the 1998 season.READ MORE: Illegal Marijuana Grow Bust Nets Nearly 30,000 Plants And Leads To 31 Arrests In San Bernardino
While speculation is rampant that Manning will retire after winning his second Super Bowl ring, Manning said Tony Dungy, his former coach with the Indianapolis Colts, advised him not to make a quick, emotional decision.
“He said: ‘Do me a favor. Listen to your coach. Take some time. Get away with your family. Reflect on what’s occurred this past season, what’s occurred in this Super Bowl and then take some time and make a calmer decision,’” Manning said.
“So I’m going to follow my coach’s advice. I’m going to enjoy this Super Bowl victory and celebrate with my family and friends. I’ll keep doing it for a few more weeks, and then at the appropriate time, I think I’ll make a decision.”
“Whatever the decision is, I have a real peace about it,” he added.MORE NEWS: COVID-19 Related Hospitalizations Continue To Drop In Los Angeles County
