In 2014, the Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning became the all-time record-holder for Most Valuable Player (MVP) trophies. He won his 5th trophy at the NFL Honors in New York. 

Manning played 13 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and four seasons with the Denver Broncos. Throughout his 17 seasons, Manning was named to the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team, Super Bowl XLI MVP, and awarded the AP MVP in 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009, and 2013. He was also named the AP Offensive Player of the Year in 2004 and 2013, and in 2005 he was named the Pro Bowl Player of the game and Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. He was then named the AP Comeback Player of the Year in 2012. 

He won the Super Bowl with the Colts in 2007 and with the Denver Broncos in 2016. Through the years, Manning surpassed his own records. He held the record for having 4,000-yard passing seasons, single-season passing yards, and single-season passing touchdowns. He also had the most first-team All-Pro picks and was third in career passing yards and passing touchdowns. 

He went on to be inducted into the Class of 2021 Football Hall of Fame. He was a legendary quarterback that young athletes strive to be like and look up to. He currently commentates on NFL games in person and during his show that he produces with his brother, “Monday Night Football With Peyton and Eli.”
