The Denver Broncos Ring of Fame at Empower Field at Mile High is quite the honor, and now it’s Peyton Manning’s Time!

If you’ve ever been to a Denver Broncos game at Empower Field at Mile High, you’ve no doubt noticed the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame just below the upper deck. It’s filled with Denver Broncos’ legends dating way back to 1960, which was the Broncos Inaugural Season in the then AFL.

Well now, NFL Hall Of Fame Quarterback and Denver Broncos great, Peyton Manning, will be inducted to the Broncos Ring of Fame during halftime this Sunday at the Broncos vs. Washington Football Team - why haven’t they picked a new name already? - football game. They'll also be celebrating his recent induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Joining the Ring of Fame is a huge deal as he’ll be joining the likes of the GOAT John Elway, late owner Pat Bowlen, Champ Bailey, Terrell Davis, Shannon Sharpe, Rod Smith, Jason Elam, Steve Atwater, and the most recent inductee, the “Winningest Coach in Denver Broncos History”, Mike Shannahan!

Sadly, Mike was inducted two weeks ago when the Broncos completely ate it against the Raiders, who Mike hates. It’s why they did his induction on that day! Lots of history between Coash Shanny and the Raiders, so it was a shame the team couldn’t beat them at home for him. Winning is always fun, but beating the Raiders is the ultimate treat!

Although Peyton was only a Bronco for four seasons, he took us to two Super Bowls and won one of them! He 100% belongs up there with other Bronco Legends. Especially since the Broncos have been on the struggle bus ever since he retired six seasons ago. It’s been a rough bumpy ride for Broncos Country, so hopefully, with the Sheriff in the house on Sunday for this amazing honor, the team finds a spark and gets back on track!

Washington is a 2-5 football team and Denver is a 3-4 football team, so it’s a winnable game! I was at Peyton's last regular-season home game with my dad when the Sheriff came back from an injury and led the Broncos to a W over the Chargers. That stadium ERUPTED! I can't wait to celebrate this football legend. Will you be watching the game this Halloween Sunday?

GO BRONCOS!
