Peyton Manning's worst game was a record-breaking nightmare that cost the Texans millions

    Peyton Manning’s entire 2015 was pretty rough, but his week 10 performance against the Kansas City Chiefs easily takes the cake. This was a 7-1 Broncos team facing off against their 3-5 division rival, doing so at home, with a quarterback on the verge of surpassing Favre for multiple career records. While Peyton got one of those, his performance was so bad it kept him from ever picking up another regular-season win as the starter. Woof.

    On top of that, do you remember when the name Brock Osweiler didn’t mean a thing to you? Things were so simple, but that changed thanks to Peyton’s performance. After completing nearly as many passes to Chiefs defenders (four) as he did to Broncos players (five) and not even reaching a combined 50 yards of offense across nine drives, his day was done. In his place came the eight-foot-tall “Twilight” impersonator at quarterback who ended up getting the rest of the starts during the regular season. Because of that, he did enough to convince the Houston Texans that he was a $70-million man, which is even wilder considering that they actually had a general manager at that point in time (again, feels so long ago).

    Granted, Manning took back over for a struggling Osweiler in week 17, led them to a comeback win and the top seed in the AFC, then won a Super Bowl and retired on top. But this isn’t about that. This is about the time he went out and had the absolute worst game of his career, and it wasn’t even close.

          I love these videos, but I think the wide font you've used for text is a bit hard to read (I may be the only one though). Especially if it is a bit complicated with multiple numbers and stats at the same time.

                Broncos helmet obviously gave it away but the 2003 AFCCG was my first guess, he was passing to Ty Law the whole game

                  Only number that matters is 50. You know, the number of the Superbowl he won that year.

                                  So I'm dumb but if you throw an int and they return the ball 10 yards with no other passes wouldn't you be at -10 yards?

                                    "Wasn't half bad" is used to describe expired milk you expected to be spoiled but wasn't somehow.

                                    "Career was pretty good" is used to describe a 30 year car salesman who averaged $40k a year.

                                    Neither is used to describe Peyton Manning's all time career.

                                    We all know his final year was bad but you are being unfairly cruel for the sake of being cruel. Trying to act like a first ballot hall of famers career was a sham based off his final season in the league is egregious and reveals you as the incompetent imbeciles you really are.

                                    You're lack of respect to a career that deserves all the respect is just another sorry example of how you and the rest of SB nation are an utter disgrace to the world of sports. That and the fact that your vocabulary lacks so much class and refinement that you rely completely on brutish swearing to get your false narrative across.

                                    It's pretty bad when not even "wasn't half bad" can be used to describe this atrocity of a sports news company. Get a life, quit your job, and find a new one. Perhaps bagging groceries for a living is more your speed.

                                                Broncos team never should have even sniffed the playoffs. Worse team ever to win a Super Bowl. Screw’em.

                                                    Honestly I'm surprised this wasn't about that time he got smacked in the head on the first snap and gave up a safety in a super bowl.

Also i would like to made a long rewind on Portugals 2016 Euro win with their whole tournament being showed. I know i wish to much.

Starting the 2010’s with two eleven win seasons followed by a 7-6 season but then going on to have 13, 11, and 12 win seasons respectively the next three years. Clearly a powerhouse is being established in the B1G only for MSU to follow up consistent excellence with a dismal 3-9 season followed by a 10-3 season, giving a glimpse of hope only to fully collapse into a hell of inefficient mediocrity with two 7-6 seasons. The loss of Pat Narduzzi as DC was a huge hit and poor recruiting lead tot he collapse of an elite program
