Manning, Davis & Elway Show Off Lombardi Trophies To The Fans

DENVER (CBS4) - Before Thursday's game began, the trappings of the defending Super Bowl champion were on display as well as the Broncos' history.

Former running back Terrell Davis and current general manager John Elway, who were the MVPs of the Broncos' successive wins in Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII, each brought those Lombardi Trophies onto the field to the roar of the crowd.

Then, Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller, who was in the locker room, handed the Lombardi Trophy to Peyton Manning, who paraded the trophy before fans.

Manning retired a month after helping the Broncos beat the Panthers for the title.
