Peyton Manning will announce his retirement on Monday, ending one of the most storied careers in NFL history. It also marks the end of one of the biggest rivalries in sports over the last two decades: Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady.
On Sunday, Brady posted a short message on his Facebook page, congratulating Manning on his “incredible career,” and noting that it was “an honor” to compete against him.
Thanks to the NFL’s strict scheduling rules, as well as the consistent greatness of both quarterbacks’ teams, we were treated to Manning vs Brady almost every season and occasionally more than once when they met in the playoffs. Sadly, the rivalry is no more.
