EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (The Spread) - If you thought that Peyton Manning would ride off into the sunset if the Broncos beat the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, think again.

When asked by Super Bowl media members if he'd like to play beyond Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Manning said he "certainly" wanted to play beyond the result of Super Bowl XLVIII. Since the playoffs started, Manning has made reference to there being "light at the end of the tunnel" in terms of his career and he does have an important physical coming up in March. But if everything checks out, it appears as though Manning would want to play another year.

"I certainly had a career change two years ago with my injury, with changing teams so I truly have been a one-year-at-a-time basis, so I really have no plans beyond this game," Manning said. "I had no plans coming into this season beyond this year, I think that's kind a healthy way to approach your career at this stage.

"I still enjoy playing football, I feel a little better than I thought I would at this point coming off that surgery. I still enjoy the preparation part of it, the work part of it. Everybody enjoys the game, everybody's excited to play in a Super Bowl, but I think when you still enjoy the preparation, the work part of it, I think you still ought to be doing that.

"I think as soon as I stop enjoying it, if I can't do this, if I can't help the team, that's when I stop playing. If that's next year and maybe it is, but I certainly want to continue to keep playing."

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bodvada.lv, the odds that Manning will retire before game one of the 2014 regular season are low. You'd have to wager $1,500.00 just to win $100 if you bet against Manning retiring, and you'd receive $700.00 for every $100.00 if you wagered on him retiring following the Super Bowl. While there's value in betting on him retiring, the odds aren't in your favor.

The Broncos remain a 2-point favorite for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, while oddsmakers currently list the total at 47 points.
