Peyton Manning is not used to losing and he’s really not used to losing in big games and big moments. The moments and games don’t get any bigger than the Super Bowl but Manning and his Denver Broncos are already down 5-0 and are looking sluggish out of the gate.
Manning has had his fair share of postseason woes but he’s looking not at all like himself so far in Super Bowl XLVIII. One person he does look like is Eli Manning, as Peyton’s younger brother was routinely confused while playing in MetLife Stadium this year with the New York Giants.
Maybe it’s the playoffs, maybe it’s the age or maybe MetLife Stadium just hates people named Manning.
