NFL players read their superlatives on ‘The Tonight Show’

Friday September 9th, 2016

The NFL is back, and are so are Jimmy Fallon’s player superlatives on The Tonight Show.

Fallon kicked off the NFL season by doling out some appropriate titles to several notable athletes like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Joe Flacco and J.J. Watt.

Check ’em out below, from a crack on Flacco’s photogenic torso to DeMarcus Ware’s clean-shaven head. Pay close attention to Russell Wilson and how he pronounced the simple last name, “Lopez.”


Lopaz? I beg your pardon, Russ? There is no “a” in Lopez. Solid dance moves though, really got America forgetting about that whole mishap.
