The New England Patriots head into the NFL off-season with yet another Lombardi Trophy in the case after taking down the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.

That marks six titles for the franchise, tying the team with the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Lombardi Trophies in NFL history.

Tom Brady is the most-decorated quarterback in NFL history and he's shown no signs of slowing down.

If it wasn't for Peyton Manning - and his younger brother Eli - Brady could have a few extra titles under his belt. The opposite is true as well, as Peyton struggled to take down Brady in the AFC en route to a title.

The two aren't enemies, however.

On Wednesday morning, Brady posted a photo with Manning. In the caption, he revealed the two are friends - not foes.

"Spoiler alert...we were friends this whole time. Always great to see you Peyton," Brady wrote.

Peyton and Brady played each other 17 times over the course of their careers. The Patriots quarterback got the better of Manning on 11 of those 17 contests.

The elder Manning brother took down Brady in two AFC title games as a member of the Denver Broncos - winning one Lombardi Trophy.

Manning retired from the league in 2015. Meanwhile, Brady is entering his 21st NFL season.
