INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – It was the crowning achievement of the Peyton Manning Era for the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts will honor members of the Super Bowl XLI championship team, recognizing the tenth anniversary of the landmark season.

The 2006 team will be introduced during halftime of the Colts’ game against the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 20 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The team finished with a 12-4 record and won playoff games against Kansas City, Baltimore and New England on its way to the Super Bowl.

The AFC Championship Game against the Patriots was particularly memorable as the Colts came back from a 21-3 deficit to beat their rivals and secure a trip to Miami to take on the Chicago Bears.

Indy won the rain-soaked Super Bowl 29-17 against the Bears; Peyton Manning was named Super Bowl MVP.

Manning retired from the NFL this season after winning a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos. He talked about a possible reunion of the Super Bowl championship team in March.

“That 2006 team was a special team,” Manning said. “I look forward to (a reunion). If it’s the 10, or the 15, or the 20, I will be at all of them. I can assure you.”

Robert Mathis and Adam Vinatieri are the only two players on the roster who played on the championship team.
