Peyton Manning, the greatest player of all time, is coming off his most productive year in his career.
But how did he do it?
The Broncos’ No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Manning was a rookie quarterback for the first time when the Superbowl LI game was on TV in February 2021.
His first pass was a 36-yard bomb to J.J. Nelson in the end zone.
He completed three passes for 47 yards and a touchdown, and the Broncos had the ball for the game’s final six minutes when the ball was deflected into the endzone.
Peyton Manning had the Broncos in the Superdome on Feb. 5, 2021.
He scored a touchdown on the game-winning drive.
