A free rusher comes at Griffin on a bootleg. He pivots, changes directions, and throws to the opposite sideline. He makes a sensational play look way too easy.
With the game on the line, Gabbert came up with this touchdown toss. As losses go, this had to feel pretty good in Jacksonville.
We struggled whether to roll with a beautiful Mark Sanchezthrow or Kevin Kolb toss for this slot. Both maligned quarterbacks came up huge Sunday. We're going to highlight Kolb because he will receive less attention. He replaced John Skelton for one drive. He took the Arizona Cardinals for a touchdown on that one drive, making quick decisions and choosing the right matchup against one of the best defensive backfields in football.
Give the man his due.
But it's not Manning's arm that makes him so great. The two touchdown tosses here came from Manning recognizing where the Pittsburgh Steelers defense was coming from and exposing it. He had Pittsburgh guessing the entire second half.
