This is the moment that ruined everything for Denver. This is the moment that made Peyton Manning a “choker.” This is excruciating.

Peyton Manning fumbled once and threw two interceptions, one via a terrible decision in overtime. But despite his three Sanchezes on Sunday, he did enough right to lead the Denver Broncos to a playoff win.

The game was over. The Baltimore Ravens, down 7, had a 3rd & 3 with 42 seconds left, no timeouts, the ball on their own 30-yard-line and Joe Flacco at quarterback. The game was so over. Then free safety Rahim Moore made one of the worst secondary plays in NFL playoff history and allowed Jacoby Jones to catch a bomb down the field to tie the game at 35.

The Ravens went on to win 38-35 on a field goal in the second overtime. But Peyton Manning really plays a terrible free safety, right?

Having said that, this was a terrible, terrible throw in OT:
