Peyton Manning acknowledged to New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick that Super Bowl 50 may be the final game of his career.

“Hey listen...This might be my last rodeo, so, it’s been a pleasure,” Manning told Belichick as they embraced following the Broncos 20–18 win over the Patriots for the AFC Championship.

Manning is 39 years old and has not said for certain whether he will retire at the season’s end. He missed six games this season with a foot injury.
