PLAYERS: Peyton Manning

via Black Sports Online:

If I was a criminal, I would do my robbing any time there was a big sporting event, because I would assume a lot of the cops were closer to the stadium, so that would enhance my chances of a smooth getaway.

Manning owns several Papa John’s restaurants in Denver, but one is a few dollars short this morning.

Police tell us the caper went down around 7:30 PM — right in the middle of Peyton and the Broncos’ big game — at the PJ’s near the University of Denver.

We’re told two masked suspects with guns walked in to the store and demanded employees hand over the money from the register … got the loot, and then made a clean getaway.

No one was injured during the robbery, and it’s unclear at this point how much cash the crooks got.

Police believe the suspects are guys in their 20s — and say their description matches several other robberies in the area last night.

Looks like the thieves were using my train of thought.

One of Peyton Manning’s Papa John’s restaurants reportedly robbed during Broncos-Chiefs game

One of the most popular strategies burglars use when robbing houses is to familiarize themselves with the homeowner’s schedule so they know when the house will be vacant.

Chiefs can learn from loss to Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs came out of it with their record finally sullied yet their pride still fully intact.

Puh-leeze: Chiefs' defense could have used a teeny tiny bit of help from offense

Five things we learned from the Chiefs' 27-17 loss to Denver on Sunday night. DEFENSE HELD UP: OK, the Chiefs' defense probably is going to take a lot of the blame, unfairly, for this loss. I will contend, however, that the defense did its part in keeping the Chiefs close enough to win this game. Yes, the defense allowed 427 yards of total offense to Peyton Manning and the...
