Peyton Manning wasn't ready to talk about retirement just yet.

Just minutes after winning his second Super Bowl championship, Peyton said he was going to "take some time to reflect" before making any announcements about whether or not Sunday night would be his last NFL game.

He also said he planned to "kiss my wife, kiss my kids and drink a lot of Budweiser."

The theme of NFL commentators was very much along the lines of Peyton "riding off into the sunset." For now, though, Peyton said he plans to "say a little prayer and thank the man upstairs." 

As for the game, Peyton said the win was "very special. This game was very much like this season. It really tested our toughness and resilience."

When questioned again about his career plans later at the trophy ceremony, he reiterated his desire to kiss his family and drink beer. He also mentioned some advice former Colts Coach Tony Dungy gave him once about avoiding decisions during emotional moments.

So time will tell if this was Peyton's last hurrah.  

Congrats, Peyton!
