When Peyton Manning hugged Bill Belichick at midfield after the Denver Broncos’ 20-18 victory over the New England Patriots, the quarterback acknowledged to the coach that Sunday’s AFC Championship Game might be the last time they match wits.

NFL Films’ cameras captured audio of Manning’s remarks.

“Hey, listen, this might be my last rodeo. So, it sure has been a pleasure,” Manning said.

Belichick’s reply wasn’t caught on camera, and on Monday he told reporters that what he had said to Manning on Sunday would remain private.

“Don’t have anything to share,” Belichick said Monday. “I shared it with Peyton.”

Sunday’s game was the 20th time that Manning has faced Belichick and the Patriots and the eighth time he has won a game against the coach. Manning improved his playoff record versus Belichick to 3-2.
