Much like a punt returner fearing being caught from behind by the punter to prevent him from scoring a touchdown, a similar thought ran through Terrence McGee’s head after his interception in Thursday night’s win over Indianapolis.
McGee returned a deflected Peyton Manning pass 78 yards for a touchdown, but he wasn’t so sure he was going the distance at the outset.
“Yes, I definitely was (worried),” said McGee. “At one point when I was running I saw QB Peyton [Manning] coming and I said ‘Oh my God, what if Peyton caught me,’ (laughing) but the guys were able to block him off and block everybody else off.”
Suffice to say if McGee, a cornerback, was caught from behind by a quarterback with the foot speed of Peyton Manning he would have never lived it down.
