Watch: Woodson finally intercepts Peyton Manning after 18 years
In 18 NFL seasons, Oakland Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson had never intercepted Peyton Manning.
That changed Sunday.
Woodson, who had dropped into zone coverage on a 3rd-and-5 late in the first half, ranged over to his left to intercept the 39-year-old Manning in the end zone. Manning was looking for tight end Owen Daniels.
The pick prevented the Broncos from erasing a 7–3 deficit before entering halftime.
Woodson narrowly beat Manning to win the Heisman Trophy in 1997.
In the second half, he picked him off for a second time.
