Seahawks Figured Out Peyton Manning's Hand Signals Early in Game

Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks figured out Peyton Manning‘s hand gestures early in the first quarter of the game, Sherman told MMQB.

“‘We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes. Then we figured out the hand signals for a few of the route audibles in the first half.’

“He demonstrates the signs Manning used for various routes, and says he and his teammates were calling out plays throughout the game and getting them right. ‘Me, Earl [Thomas], Kam [Chancellor]… we’re not just three All-Pro players. We’re three All-Pro minds,’ Sherman says. ‘Now, if Peyton had thrown in some double moves, if he had gone out of character, we could’ve been exposed.'”

Peyton had one of his worst games on Sunday. He had no time to throw the football and he had a couple of interceptions in the game. He was hit a ton in the backfield.

Peyton is known for his audibles at the line of scrimmage. If a team were able to figure out his hand signals and audibles, then the Broncos offense would be vulnerable. He sure had one of the worst games that he has ever played.

Could the Seahawks have figured it out?
