Omaha Productions’ ‘Peyton’s Places’ brings Manning, McAfee back to Indianapolis

More by this author

In the Halloween-themed episode of “Peyton’s Places” on ESPN+, former Indianapolis Colts Quarterback, Super Bowl champion and Hall of Famer Peyton Manning returns to Lucas Oil Stadium in macabre fashion. Manning, alongside former Colts Punter, 2x Pro Bowler and fan favorite Pat McAfee, spent the day discussing the art, science and history of the
“coffin kick.”

Peyton’s Places is a documentary-style series streaming on ESPN+ that follows Manning as he visits memorable sites and meets with historical players and coaches to explore football’s past, including the coffin kick, a punt strategically placed between the 10-yard line and 1-yard line.

McAfee played for the Indianapolis Colts for eight seasons and was known for his powerful leg, impressive accuracy and charismatic personality.

The posh punter, who played for the Colts for eight seasons, recalls calling Manning out on his Podcast “The Pat McAfee Show.”

“Peyton’s Places have had some comedians on it, it’s had Patriots on it and the Colts hate the Patriots,” McAfee said. 

After leaving Crown Hill Cemetery, one of the most notable cemeteries in Indianapolis, McAfee discusses how he got into punting. 

“When I was born, I had a rocket on my right hip,” McAfee said jokingly when discussing how he got into punting. “I wasn’t strong enough to be a field goal kicker.”

Throughout the episode, Manning reflected on his time with McAfee and the Indianapolis Colts.

“Pat sure was an asset for us,” Manning said.

The episode is full of history, insight and haunting puns. Notable football figures make a cameo in the episode, including football legends Sammy Baugh, Ray Guy and Indianapolis Colts Owner Jim Irsay. 

“What the hell? What are we doing? Funerals now?” Irsay yelled from the Lucas Oil Stadium sidelines.
