Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is currently celebrating breaking the record for the most touchdown passes in NFL history, but earlier this year the 38-year-old was in much more glum mood following his poor performance in Superbowl 48 versus the triumphant Seattle Seahawks.
To rub salt into his wounds, his former teammate Brandon King -- who played with Manning at the Indianopolis Colts -- created an app, named 'Smashman', that mocks Manning's Superbowl meltdown.
The app requires you to control a player -- who looks a lot like Peyton Manning -- and score 44 points. However, the game is set up to make it nearly impossible to score that many points.
"The Super Bowl was the most embarrassing game I ever saw him play," said King. "I was like, let me make an app where it's almost impossible to score on a defense."
