Manning Gets His Super Bowl
MIAMI--Peyton Manning got his Super Bowl triumph.
That is what will be remembered about this rain-soaked night in Miami--that Manning cemented his place among the sport's greatest-ever quarterbacks as his Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears, 29-17.
Both quarterbacks played about as expected. Manning completed 25 of 38 passes for 247 yards and was named the game's most valuable player. He threw an early interception but also had a 53-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Reggie Wayne during a first quarter.
The Bears' Rex Grossman made the key mistake, throwing a fourth-quarter interception that Colts cornerback Kelvin Hayden returned for a game-clinching touchdown.
Manning said he wasn't seeking validation for his career. He got it anyway.
"I never played that card or played that game," Manning said. "But it's nice to finally be on a championship team.... It's all happening pretty fast right now. I'm excited. I'm proud to be on this team. It's something I'll enjoy for a long time."
Said Colts Coach Tony Dungy: "I don't think there's anything you can say now other than this guy is a Hall of Famer and one of the best players to ever play the game."
