If it wasn't the case already, Peyton Manning's 2013 campaign probably solidified his standing as the greatest regular-season quarterback in NFL history. In his 16th NFL season, Manning not only set career-highs in touchdown passes and yards, he set the league record for both. Manning's next shot at a Super Bowl starts at 6:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, kickoff time for the big game.
But it's that qualifier of "regular-season" that hovers ominously above his legacy. Despite all of his other successes, and despite having already lifted the Lombardi Trophy once as a member of the Indianapolis Colts, it seems his resumé will never be truly complete until he's able to write in "multiple Super Bowl winner."
Manning will by no means be to only one trying cement his legacy on Sunday evening. Denver cornerback Champ Bailey, having finally reached the title game after 15 seasons, will be looking to add a ring to his Hall of Fame career. Head coach John Fox will attempt to erase the disappointment of his first trip to the Super Bowl with the Carolina Panthers, in which he came up empty.
On the other sideline, Richard Sherman hopes to back up his self-coronation as the league's best corner by shutting down the league's best passing attack. Russell Wilson can begin to curate his own fledgling legacy by bringing a championship to Seattle in just his second year.
