Tony Dungy on Thursday confirmed the long-held rumor that quarterback Peyton Manning thought the New England Patriots spied on the visitors' locker room at Gillette Stadium.

Dungy told "The Dan Patrick Show" that "whether it's true or not, (Manning) treated it as true. We didn't have a lot of strategy discussions inside the locker room there."

"Peyton takes everything to the Nth degree," said Dungy, who coached Manning with the Indianapolis Colts from 2002 to 2008.

As a Colt and Denver Bronco, Manning is 3-7 at New England, 6-13 vs. the Patriots overall.
