The Denver Broncos won their first Super Bowl since 1999 as they defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 Sunday night. The game may have just been quarterback Peyton Manning’s last in the NFL and he certainly went out on top.
Not only did he tie his younger brother for Super Bowl wins, but he also became the first quarterback to reach an impressive stat. He is the first quarterback to reach 200 wins as a starter.

This is a huge feat for any quarterback to accomplish and if it was his final game last night, he will truly go out on top. However, his reign at the top of the board might not last long.
Manning’s biggest rival, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, is just six wins away from tying him as the all-time leader. If Manning is retiring, that record would be broken likely before the halfway mark of the 2016 season.
