During Sunday’s NFL All-Star Game, NFC center Jeff Saturday was allowed to swap teams and snap to AFC quarterback Peyton Manning one final time, fittingly, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Saturday, of course, spent thirteen years snapping to Manning in Indianapolis before both players left the Colts last offseason. Back in Hawaii, representing Green Bay and Denver, Saturday and Manning got one last snap.
“After doing it that long with him, we figured it was our last run together, might as well get one more,” said Saturday, who played more center for the NFC after his moment with Manning, in a sideline interview with NBC (via Shutdown Corner). “It was something special I’ll always remember.”
In the game, Manning went 6-of-12 for 43 yards and a touchdown pass. Early in the fourth quarter, the NFC currently leads 55-21.
