Indianapolis Colts legend Peyton Manning is set to be part of the newest group that will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Current legend Tom Brady will be in attendance.
An awesome sidebar to Manning’s induction is that Brady, who was Manning’s biggest rival throughout his career, will be in Peyton’s personal seating section for the induction.
Tom Brady hilariously noted why he will be attending the ceremonies in the first place.
I just need to make sure he’s really done. Can’t risk this guy coming back… https://t.co/8afUVxicjO

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning had some incredible duels when they were with the Patriots and Colts, respectively. For over a decade the AFC seemed to be run by either one of their teams with sprinkles of the Pittsburgh Steelers as well.
Among the incredible stats for both quarterbacks, Manning won a Super Bowl with both the Colts and the Denver Broncos while Tom Brady has won titles with both the Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady, is in his age 44 season and still rolling with the Bucs coming off another championship. Now, he’ll be attending Manning’s Hall of Fame ceremony. Besides, as he says, he has to make sure Manning really is retired.
From 2002-2019, either the Patriots or Colts made the AFC Championship in 14 seasons, including either Brady, Manning or both. They went head-to-head in two of those conference title games. It’s one of the best if not the best quarterback rivalry to ever exist in NFL history. Now, Brady will be there for Manning’s induction.
