The experience gave him the extra boost he needed to power through the hard times and focus on the good.
Josh still talks about his amazing wish to meet Peyton Manning and how it has changed his life forever! Unlike his first Super Bowl victory nearly a decade ago, Manning was much more of a secondary figure Sunday, largely managing the game while C. Anderson ran effectively and the Broncos defense wreaked havoc on Cam Newton and company. The five-time MVP's arm was not a liability, although Manning did not test it downfield often, with his longest completion going for only 25 yards.
His one interception came with left in the second quarter, when Manning failed to see the Panthers' Kony Ealy in front of Emmanuel Sanders at the Carolina yard line. The miscue was notably Manning's first interception in his last postseason passes. He also endured heavy pressure from an aggressive Panthers front, suffering five sacks and losing a fumble on a hit by Ealy at the Panthers yard line early in the fourth quarter.
Having now capped off a season marked by injury and persistent questions about his arm strength with a Super Bowl victory, the matter of Manning's willingness to play in will remain a burning question until he addresses the matter definitively one way or the other. Further complicating the decision may be the fact that Manning has already been informed he will eventually need hip replacement surgery, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier this week. Manning completed 17 of 32 passes for yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Patriots in the AFC championship game.
He also lost a fumble. The Sheriff's offense was limited to just total yards on Sunday, but his ability to limit the turnovers and cash in on good field position secured a trip to next month's Super Bowl.

Manning will now have a couple of weeks to rest up before facing the winner of Sunday's NFC championship game between the Cardinals and the Panthers.

The Patriots, who Manning did not suit up against in a Week 12 victory, will come town next week, with the right to go to the Super Bowl on the line. Manning has been named the Broncos ' starter for their divisional round playoff game on Jan. Head coach Gary Kubiak made the announcement Thursday morning after meeting with both Manning and Brock Osweiler, who had relieved Manning mid-season. Manning missed six games from Week 11 through Week 16 due to a plantar fascia injury, with Osweiler going as the interim starter. Osweiler was under center to begin last Sunday's game against San Diego, but Manning entered in the third quarter as the Broncos struggled to move the ball.
The veteran ended the game going 5-of-9 for 69 yards in the Broncos victory. At this point, it's unclear whether Kubiak and the Broncos are committed to Manning as the starter throughout the playoffs, but it's not difficult to imagine Osweiler again coming on in relief at some point, should Manning struggle.
