Turns out we'll get to see Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady this season, although the matchup will look different than we've ever seen it. Manning has instructed his agent to work out a deal with the Denver Broncos, and a game at New England is on Denver's 2012 schedule. The opponents have been determined for teams, but the schedule won't be released for several weeks. In addition to their AFC West opponents, the Broncos will play home games against Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Houston, New Orleans and Tennessee.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has passed a physical exam, clearing him to play and earn his $20-million paycheck in 2014, according to reports. Manning is required to undergo an exam of his neck every spring under the 2012 contract he signed with the Broncos after missing all of the previous season following neck surgeries. But this year's test was considered a formality. After all, there was nothing about Manning's record-setting season in 2013 that indicated his neck was still an issue.

The Miami Dolphins figure to be one of the most aggressive teams in bidding for the services of Peyton Manning, who will be released by Indianapolis on Wednesday morning. In doing so, the Dolphins will be mindful of what happened six years ago when they let a prime opportunity get away. In 2006, the Dolphins were in the market for a quarterback and had a chance to sign Drew Brees, who was coming off a devastating shoulder injury. Brees had been released by San Diego, which had decided to cast its lot with Philip Rivers.

No one said it would be that easy, at least not publicly. Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll and his players spent two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl lauding the Denver Broncos, quarterback Peyton Manning and their seemingly unstoppable offense. However, privately Carroll and his players and staff believed a rout of the Broncos was possible. Actually, probable. On Sunday, in front of 85,529 at MetLife Stadium, the Seahawks made it happen, dominating Manning and the Broncos in every phase in a 43-8 victory.

Peyton Manning wanted to stay with his team but was pushed out the door by ownership. LeBron James was leaving a team that desperately wanted him to stay. Which one do you think had the classier farewell? While there seems to be an ever-decreasing level of humility and grace in the sports world, former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning gave a farewell news conference Wednesday and thanked the Colts and the team owners for giving him a chance to lead the team for so many years.

Peyton Manning has narrowed down his choices of potential teams to join as a free agent. Or so the reports say. But oddly enough, that list seems to keep growing rather than getting smaller, like most lists that are being narrowed down tend to do. Since being released by the Indianapolis Colts last week, the veteran quarterback has met with the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos, spending at least six hours with each team. Reports early Monday said Manning had no intention of meeting with any other teams.

Free agency starts Tuesday, and Commissioner Roger Goodell is due to hand down punishments for the Saints' bounty scandal, but the biggest story in the NFL this week -- and this off-season -- is the future of Peyton Manning. The four-time most valuable player had a busy weekend, spending Friday and part of Saturday meeting in Denver with Broncos brass, then flying to Arizona on Saturday night and meeting with the Cardinals for 6½ hours on Sunday. He then flew back to Miami, where he has a condominium, and didn't meet with Seattle or Kansas City, a strong indication that those suitors are either out of the sweepstakes or facing fourth-and-long.

Now that one shoe has dropped with Peyton Manning choosing the Broncos, some of the focus shifts to the other -- what happens to Tim Tebow? It's likely that Denver will trade Tebow as soon as possible, and in fact that might have been one of Manning's stipulations for picking the Broncos. After all, considering Tebow's popularity, Manning wouldn't want the distraction of a segment of the fan base pushing for a quarterback change after a bad game. So where is Tebow most marketable?

Peyton Manning is back where it all started for him -- at least for a look around. Manning, the former University of Tennessee star, is in that state to meet with the Titans, perhaps the last stop on his tour to visit with NFL teams courting him. According to the Nashville Tennessean, Titans Coach Mike Munchak, along with General Manager Ruston Webster and Chief Operating Officer Mike Reinfeldt, flew to Raleigh-Durham, N.C., on Wednesday morning...

The unraveling started when Omaha became Whoa-maha! The Denver Broncos' first snap of Super Bowl XLVIII sailed high over the right shoulder of Peyton Manning, and thus began the most monstrously disastrous game of his illustrious football career. Manning sat at an interview podium Sunday night and, his shoulders slumping under the weight of a 43-8 loss to Seattle, tried to wrap his head around how such a big game could go wrong so quickly. That errant snap was recovered by the Broncos in the end zone for a safety a mere 12 seconds into the game, the fastest score in Super Bowl history.

Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith had two huge interceptions during the postseason, including a pick-six of Denver quarterback Peyton Manning that helped him earn MVP honors at Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday night. But something strange happened after the game - Smith's postgame press conference was intercepted from him. By a guy wearing a red flannel shirt. As the third-year linebacker from USC was describing what it was like to be the Super Bowl MVP, a man identified by New Jersey State Police as Matthew Mills strolled to the podium, grabbed the microphone and rather calmly stated, "Investigate 9/11.

Full disclosure. Before Super Bowl XLVIII, I argued that Peyton Manning's legacy was established and whether the Broncos won or lost the game wouldn't alter the way his career would be viewed. Well.... Who figured that the Broncos quarterback would end up looking more like Brandon Weedon than Peyton Manning on Sunday. Sam Farmer, The Times' astute NFL columnist, discusses Manning, the Super Bowl, and what lies ahead for the NFL in 2014 in the video above. As for Manning, Farmer was as surprised as just about everyone else that the Seahawks defense was able to take him out of his game so effectively.

Peyton Manning choked, Bruno Mars shone, Jerry Seinfeld droned and Joe Theismann showed up in the post-game episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine. " Where he broke his leg. Again. Where once TV's biggest live event dominated four or five hours of Sunday television, it now claims weeks. Forget the sports-page buildup, the commercials now have their own teaser ads, the half-time show inevitably has "something to prove" (beyond how very old the members of the Who have become), and the follow-up shows go out of their way to leverage the premium spot.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Malcolm Smith tries to keep a low profile, doing the grunt work for a Seattle Seahawks defense that is the best in the NFL. Staying under the radar might not be possible after Sunday night when the third-year linebacker from USC returned an interception for a touchdown, recovered a fumble and was voted the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLVIII. Smith also made nine tackles as the Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, at MetLife Stadium.

One of the greatest eras in NFL history is coming to a close. Peyton Manning will be released Wednesday by the Indianapolis Colts, according to multiple reports, ending a months-long saga of what the franchise would do with the league's only four-time most valuable player. The news was first reported on ESPN.com. Manning, who sat out last season recovering from multiple neck surgeries, has said he intends to play this season, even if it's with another franchise. Manning, who turns 36 this month, won a Super Bowl with the Colts in 2006.

The Seattle Seahawks lowered the Legion of Boom on the Denver Broncos, easily rolling to a 43-8 victory in Super Bowl 2014. The Seahawks' menacingly nicknamed defense was dominant, holding the Broncos without a first down until the 20th minute of the game, and Seattle continually made Denver pay for its sloppy play, which included four turnovers. It was the first Super Bowl championship for the Seattle franchise, which was making its second Super Bowl appearance. The Seahawks struck quickly in each half, scoring points at the 12-second mark in each.

Peyton Manning's record-setting season earned him his fifth Associated Press NFL most valuable player award Saturday night in a landslide. No other player has won more than three. Denver's record-setting quarterback, who threw for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards in leading the Broncos to the AFC's best record, earned 49 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. New England quarterback Tom Brady got the other vote. Manning won MVP awards with Indianapolis in 2003, '04, '08 and '09. He was the runner-up last season to Adrian Peterson . Manning, who will play in the Super Bowl on Sunday, sent his father to pick up the award.
