Peyton Manning will take time away from football this week after his Denver Broncos were hammered in Super Bowl XLVIII by the Seattle Seahawks. 

Former coach of Manning, Tony Dungy, told Fox Sports that from what he knows of the great QB, he will likely to take time away from the game to regroup. 

Questions post-Super Bowl about whether or not Manning will retire still remain, but Dungy sees him coming back stronger. 

"I haven't had a chance to speak to him. From knowing Peyton, I know what he will do and he will just get away from everything for about a week," Dungy told Crowd Goes Wild. 

"And then he will start getting ready for next year. He'll be fine and he will come back from this and try to figure out ways they can improve."  

Manning will be playing golf Thursday as he tries to recover from the heavy defeat. 

The Denver signal-caller became a late entry yesterday into the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tournament. 

Manning carries a 7-handicap and will partner pro Scott Langley. Three other current NFL quarterbacks are entered in the event, including Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith.

The tournament begins Thursday on three Monterey Peninsula courses.
