Peyton Manning

Indianapolis Colts | Super Bowl XLI

As the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft, Peyton Manning was a star for the Indianapolis Colts from the beginning. After turning the Colts into an AFC powerhouse, in 2006 Manning led the Colts to Super Bowl XLI. Despite the rain, Manning's decision-making was close to impeccable. He would orchestrate a 247-yard, one-TD performance to lead the Colts past the Chicago Bears, 29-17. Manning walked away with his first Super Bowl MVP that year and helped coach Tony Dungy become the first black head coach to win a NFL championship.
