Peyton Manning Gives Himself Up, Gets Up, Completes 34 Yard Pass (Video)

When you’re Peyton Manning, you tend to get some calls in your favor every now and then.

Like today, during the fourth quarter of Denver’s divisional round match-up against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Peyton appeared to give himself up behind the line after almost being sacked.  But with no whistle blown, and no one around him, he proceeded to get back to his feet before hooking up with Emmanuel Sanders for a 34-yard gain:

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin thought about challenging the play, but whether or not a quarterback gives himself up is not reviewable.  The only things Pittsburgh could have challenged was whether or not Manning was down by contact–which he wasn’t.
