Peyton Manning led the Denver Broncos to a 17-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday and moments later was asked by Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles for an autograph, as captured by KCTV5.
According to Charles, the autograph was for his mother, who is a big fan of Manning. The Chiefs, currently 1-10 and at the bottom of the AFC West, also saw receiver Dwayne Bowe pose for a picture with the quarterback after the game. Bowe said Manning is a legend and that anyone would want a picture with him:
“It’s a legend, I guess. It’s Peyton Manning. Who wouldn’t want a picture with him? If you had an opportunity, would you take it?”
A similar situation unfolded during the Olympics last summer. After the U.S. handled Tunisia 110-63, a Tunisian player took off his shoe and asked Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, then a member of the Olympic squad, to sign it.
