This is still my favorite Pro Bowl Play ever. The final snap.

I’m still surprised the NFL allowed this. Even in an exhibition game, it’s still bit of surprise coming from the league that threatened penalty/fine/ejection if Peyton Manning wore black hi-tops to honor Johnny Unitas after the legendary signal caller passed away.

He shouldn’t have asked permission and just done it.

On This Day:

a divisional battle vs. Gary Kubiak’s Houston Texans, Peyton Manning led his
team to a 20-17 win leading a 4th quarter comeback that ended with a
Joseph Addai 2 yard touchdown run.

finished the game 34/51 for 318 yards, a touchdown pass to Addai that opened
the scoring in the first quarter.

On This Day:

a sunny day in Charlotte, North Carolina Peyton Manning became the first player
in NFL history to beat 31 teams(all but his own) beating the Carolina Panthers
31-7. It might also have been the last time Manning faced a Quarterback older
than him, in Vinny Testaverde(will have to check that).

finished 14/30 for 255 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Joseph Addai caught the
first one for four yards.

the 3rd quarter Manning hit wide receiver Reggie Wayne with a 59
yarder that eclipsed Johnny Unitas’ franchise record of 287 touchdown passes.
Before manning was fired/cut/thrown away he pushed the franchise record to 399.

On This Day:

the team that started his neck issues for the first time since the injury,
Peyton Manning tore into the Washington Redskins for 307 yards and a pair of
touchdowns leading his team to a 27-24 victory.

Manning finished the day 25/38 with the touchdown passes going to Pierre Garçon(57)
and Austin Collie(5).
