Peyton Manning is 37. He’s in his 16th season. He’s playing for his second team and — fourth head coach — in a career that bridges three decades.
Ancient by the NFL calendar, he should be one of two things by now: an emergency backup or retired. But he’s neither.
A lock for his fifth MVP award (no one else has more than three), Manning is more Manning-like than ever. Otherworldly, to be precise.
