Peyton probably will wear gloves

  • Print

CHANCES are Peyton Manning will be like most of the fans in the stands at MetLife Stadium and will wear gloves at the Super Bowl.

That shouldn't be a cause for concern for Denver Broncos fans. He actually plays better with the sticky-feeling orange-and-grey glove on his right hand than he does barehanded.

Manning never wore a glove in Indianapolis, but in his two years in Denver he's worn one on either his throwing hand or on both hands 13 times. He has a passer rating of 111.9 in those games.

Barehanded, his QB rating is 108.7.

It's not just a cold-weather option, as many people think, either.

The glove is actually a concession to the altered feel of his grip after spinal-fusion surgery in 2011 affected the nerve that travels into his right triceps.

He's worn the glove the last four games, when the temperatures at kickoff have been 14 C at Houston, 20 at Oakland, -12 at home against San Diego, and 16 last Sunday in Denver against New England.

"I've experimented with them throughout my career, even when I was in Indy," Manning said earlier this season.
