While Denver was a mile high with happiness from Sunday's Broncos victory over the Patriots, quarterback Peyton Manning chose Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse to toast his team's ticket to the Super Bowl. Manning's family and friends, about 40 people in total, all met up at the elegant Greenwood Village steakhouse in a private dining room to celebrate the AFC Championship title.
The group enjoyed dinner and several bottles of Champagne while they kept an eye on the NFC Championship game, in which the Carolina Panthers snatched the NFC title from the Arizona Cardinals. Archie Manning, Peyton's father and a former NFL quarterback who attended the game on Sunday, joined the festivities and sat next to his 39 year old son who heads to San Francisco for the last big challenge of his impressive career.
