When Denver Broncos wide receiver Bennie Fowler caught a ball in the end zone of the Super Bowl to score a two-point conversion with 3:13 left in the game, he didn't just put the Broncos up by two scores, he may have caught quarterback Peyton Manning's last pass.

Manning realized it.

Fowler said Manning asked for the ball back.

Fowler wrote on Twitter, "P money asked for the ball I had no choice but to say Yes."

Fowler also posted a picture of himself, Manning and the ball at Broncos headquarters on Tuesday.

That was also the only pass that Manning threw for points in Super Bowl 50. The Broncos scored 24 points in the game. Nine points were field goals, one touchdown was scored by the defense and one touchdown was on a run by C.J. Anderson. The final two points came on Fowler's catch for two points.
