Peyton Manning, Ray Lewis share private moment


Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis spent the week praising each other's NFL legacy. That's to be expected from the two future Hall of Famers.

The mutual respect wasn't all show, for those with doubts. Manning waited an hour and a half with his family Saturday after the Baltimore Ravens' shocking playoff win over the Denver Broncos to have a private moment with Lewis.

We all have a tendency to get a little cynical at times with all the hype and extravagance that surrounds the NFL and its players. But this was one of those honest moments -- two of the best to ever play their respective positions having a moment to themselves.

Fans only will get to see Lewis play football for a maximum of two more games. Manning is running short on years.

These are the moments to remember.
