Robert Mathis sacks Peyton Manning for fumble, safety (GIF)


Earlier this week, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said that he knows Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Robert Mathis hits harder than Eli Manning. He got another reminder in the second quarter of their Sunday night match up. Pinned up against their own end zone, Peyton Manning dropped back to pass.

Mathis came up behind Manning and sacked him as his arm was back with the football, preparing to throw the football. He ended up knocking the football loose while sacking Manning.

The Colts recovered the football but it was ruled out-of-bounds giving them the safety instead of the touchdown. Still, playing Peyton you’ll take all the points you can get. Not only did the Colts get the points, they got the ball too and are playing for a chance to lead.
