How Many Championship Rings Does Peyton Manning Have?

The 1998 NFL Draft featured two-star quarterbacks that, at the time, were both worthy of the No. 1 overall pick.

The choice came down to Tennessee’s Peyton Manning and Washington State’s Ryan Leaf.

Ultimately, the Indianapolis Colts, who held the No. 1 overall pick, selected Manning, and this would be a franchise-defining selection. 

Manning played for the Colts from 1998-2011 before heading off to the Denver Broncos, but his Colts legacy is heavily cemented.

Over his career, Manning won five MVP awards, a Super Bowl MVP, a Comeback Player of the Year, a two-time NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and two Super Bowls. 

Here, we’ll focus on Manning’s Super Bowls, exploring the number of games he won and his performance. 

Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

Peyton Manning NFL Championship Rings

2006-2007: Indianapolis Colts

Manning won his first Super Bowl in February 2007 against the Rex Grossman-led Chicago Bears. The Colts won the game relatively easily by a margin of 29-17. The game started with a Devin Hester kickoff return, which gave the Bears a 7-0 lead, but after the first quarter, the Colts took over. 

Interestingly, Manning didn’t post a massive passing stat line. He completed 25-of-38 passes for 247 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Despite having a not-so-great line, Manning was named Super Bowl MVP. 

The player that showed up big-time here was running back Dominic Rhodes, who went for 113 yards on 21 carries. He also scored a touchdown. 

In this game, kicker Adam Vinatieri made three field goals, and Kelvin Hayden returned an interception 56 yards for the game's final score. 

2015-2016: Denver Broncos

Manning’s next Super Bowl came after he was with the Colts. This time, he was with the Broncos. At the time, Manning was the only starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with multiple teams. Today, he and Tom Brady are the only ones to do so. 

Again, the Manning-led team won this game handily, beating the Panthers 24-10. The Panthers only scored points in the second and fourth quarters against a dominant Broncos defense. 

Manning performed much better in his first Super Bowl win. Here, he completed 13-of-23 passes for 141 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. Running back C.J. Anderson had 90 yards on 23 carries for one touchdown. 

Much like a fellow Broncos quarterback, this game marked the end of Manning’s career, going out on top with a Super Bowl victory. 

He struggled in his final season, passing for just nine touchdowns, and this was undoubtedly the end of the line for him, but he held on to win a title before sailing off into the sunset. 

Comparing Mannings’s Rings to the Winningest Players in NFL History

Manning has two Super Bowl rings in his career, and, as mentioned, Manning is just one of two starting quarterbacks to win a ring with multiple teams. Manning has been out of the NFL since this game, and it took about a decade between Super Bowl wins. 

Below, we’ll look at the players with the most Super Bowl wins.
