Much has been made this week of Peyton Manning’s record in cold weather games, and the fact he’s wearing a glove on his throwing hand. CBS’ Solomon Wilcots even reported that Manning was sticking his hand into a bucket of ice water in practice, to simulate not being able to feel the ball.
Perhaps his receivers ought to consider something different.
After a Demaryius Thomas drop early, a ball deflected off wide receiver Eric Decker (with some help by Ravens cornerback Chykie Brown grabbing his arm), and was returned 39 yards for a touchdown by Ravens cornerback Corey Graham.
That’s given the Ravens a 14-7 lead, and made today better than anything we saw during the Wild Card weekend.
