DENVER (AP) – Peyton Manning isn’t saying that Super Bowl 50 is his grand finale.

He’s just saying it could be.

NFL Network cameras caught the exchange between Manning and New England coach Bill Belichick after Denver’s 20-18 win over the Patriots in the AFC championship game on Sunday.

When they embraced, Manning leaned in and told Belichick, “Hey listen, this might be my last rodeo. So, it sure has been a pleasure.”

Belichick responded, “You’re a great competitor …”

Neither spoke of their exchange afterward.

Earlier this month, Manning said, “I’d be lying if I said I’m not thinking about that,” when asked if this could be it for him.

The five-time MVP’s season ends Feb. 7 in the Super Bowl against Carolina.
