It might be time for Cleveland Browns safety Donte Whitner to hang them up. He once discussed changing his name to Donte Hitner, but he wasn’t the one doing all the hitting Sunday.
Notorious run-blocker/laser, cannon armed quarterback Peyton Manning saw his running back Ronnie Hillman cut it back from right to left and the veteran gunslinger saw his opportunity to lead the charge, laying out Whitner in the process.
Hillman may have already been tripped up, but if this isn’t on Manning’s career highlight reel, we may just lose it.
As for the final, the Broncos held on for a 26-23 overtime win to remain (somehow) undefeated.
