In 2013, former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning put up a record-breaking season for the Denver Broncos in which he threw for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards, both of which are NFL single-season record. But while Manning is the most prolific statistical quarterback in league history, he also earned a reputation as an incredibly hard worker.
This Sunday, you’ll get a chance to see the work that went into Manning’s 2013 campaign in a new documentary produced by NFL Films. NBC will air a special edition of the NFL Network show “The Timeline” at 7:00 p.m. ET this Sunday evening, and the show is titled “Peyton Manning’s Summer School.”
You can check out the trailer below (it looks really good):

The trailer features some behind-the-scenes shots of Manning filmed from that 2013 season, along with some film sessions with his former college coach David Cutcliffe (now the head coach at Duke).
Oh, and also, Peyton Manning doesn’t like his brother Eli crunching while he eats chips.
