Insane NFL Stat Of The Day: QB Leading The League In Interceptions Hasn’t Played In Six Weeks

by 3 years ago

Peyton Manning is in the midst of staunchly defending himself against HGH allegations and with each passing hour, things aren’t exactly improving for the Broncos QB. But what might even be more shocking than the idea of your mom’s favorite NFL player who does all of those “cute” commercials might’ve taken HGH, is that Pey-Pey — who hasn’t played football since November 15 — still leads the NFL in interceptions.

After taking a quick peak at his stats, it was that fateful game in Week 9 that really vaulted Manning to the top, where he managed just five completions for 35 yards to go along with FOUR picks before being lifted in favor of Brock Osweiler.

So, as we head into the final week of the regular season, a guy who has sat for six weeks still miraculously leads the league in INTs after playing a hair over half a season.

Perhaps staying at home and denying HGH reports is the best course of action at this point? This would also allow Manning time to put together an all-star team of lawyers to help concoct a reasonable excuse as to why he chose to spend so much of his downtime watching Hoda and Kathie Lee.

And maybe, just maybe, we’ll also learn why he’s only the quarterback in the NFL who continuously gets nut-slapped by his own helmet on a regular basis.

The world demands answers. Lots of ’em.
