Legendary quarterback, Peyton Manning, has no plans on walking away from the game regardless of the result, in the upcoming Super Bowl.
The Denver Broncos star, 37, has enjoyed a phenomenal season, shattering a number of records as he has led his team to the final.
Throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns, it's only the Seattle Seahawks that stand between him and another Super Bowl ring.
Despite having four neck surgeries, he has no plans of quitting the game after this Sunday.
He said: "I still enjoy playing football. I think as soon as I stop enjoying it, if I can't produce, if I can't help a team, that's when I will stop playing."
He has admitted to speaking to both, Ray Lewis and John Elway, who retired as champions, with Lewis doing it as recently as the last Super Bowl.
Manning still receives the support of his team mates, with Wide Receiver Wes Welker adding: "He loves being around the guys. He loves the game planning. He loves Sundays. It's great to see and it definitely inspires me."
Welker enjoyed a good 2013 season, making 73 receptions for 778 yards and ten touchdowns.
