This week has been a good week for Peyton Manning. He and the rest of the Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, he went to Disneyland with his family on Monday, he celebrated with a million Broncos fans at the championship parade Tuesday, and he showed up onThe Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday. It remains to be seen whether he'll officially retire from the NFL in the coming weeks, but for now he's basking in glory and rightfully so. He isn't the player he once was, but perhaps no quarterback in history deserved to be carried to a Super Bowl victory by his team's defense more than him. He had an entire career of playing on teams that leaned heavily on his passing game to win before this amazing Broncos postseason.
Shockingly, it appears that one appearance on The Tonight Show by No. 18 wasn't enough to discuss the big game and joke around, though. On Thursday night, a slighter version of the 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback sat down next to Fallon to talk shop. This Manning also seemed to have a poor memory of the game and where he went to college, and a bizarre affinity for Sears. On top of all that, he happened to be comedian Kristen Wiig.
Wiig was totally out of her element trying to impersonate Manning and that's exactly what made the appearance so funny. Check it out below:
