DENVER (KDVR) — Peyton Manning was inducted into the Ring of Fame as the 35th member of the Denver Broncos during pregame and halftime ceremonies on Sunday.
Manning is just the second Broncos player to be elected to the Ring of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame in the same season, joining cornerback Champ Bailey. He was unanimously elected to the Ring of Fame in June.
The pregame ceremony began at 12:30 p.m. at Ring of Fame Plaza with Manning’s pillar unveiling, orange jacket presentation and a Q&A session emceed by Dave Logan.
Manning received his ring and his name was unveiled on the Ring of Fame façade during halftime ceremonies.
The Broncos beat the Washington Football Team 17-10 at Empower Field.
During his time as a Bronco, Manning threw for 140 touchdowns and 17,112 yards. He ranks second in team history in passing yards, completions and touchdown passes, while his completion percentage is the best in franchise history.
The Ring of Fame was created in 1984 by team owner Pat Bowlen to honor former players and administrators who played significant roles in the franchise’s history.
