Peyton Manning irate with officials after suspect ending to Pro Bowl
Peyton Manning was not happy with the end the the Pro Bowl Games Sunday afternoon.
He argued that the end of the 7-on-7 flag football game between the AFC and NFC, coached by his brother Eli, should have not been allowed to end on a knee. As you can see below, Manning was legitimately upset with officials at the end of a game that is ultimately meaningless.
Come for Peyton’s anger, stay for Justin Jefferson waving goodbye in the background.

He was arguing that because Kirk Cousins was within the 5-yard line, he had to throw the ball (Pro Bowl rule this season) rather than knee it, which is technically a running play. Forcing the NFC to throw would give the AFC a legitimate chance to come back and win on a shorter field.
Peyton Manning is just a competitor, through and through. You’d probably find a similar reaction to him losing a game of ping pong.
