We're only one game into the NFL season, but it appears the Denver Broncos may have their new savior. Peyton Manning, who went 19-for-26 for 253 yards and two touchdowns in his debut with the Broncos, has already achieved one of the highest honors for any professional athlete: his likeness has been emblazoned into a corn field.
Giant corn mazes have become all the rage in the world of sports. The Cincinnati Reds, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Washington State Cougars have each been immortalized in corn. Additionally, Manning joins Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch as NFL players to achieve grainy greatness.
The farmers at Fritzler Farm craft a different image on the field each year, and you can see Manning's 12 predecessors here.
The field is set to open to the public on Sept. 15.
