Peyton Manning is known for quite a few things. He's a two-time Super Bowl champ, a five-time NFL MVP, a 14-time Pro Bowler and a hilarious spokesman for some big-name commercial brands. In fact, Manning even managed to make his pre-snap cadence famous.

But he's also responsible for one of the funniest hot mic moments in NFL history.

Peyton Manning "Damnit Donald" Video

During a 2010 postseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, Manning seems to shout "left" to tell his running back Donald Brown to help pick up a block on the left side.

Of course, Brown goes right and Manning has no choice but to scramble out of the pocket and eat a sack. As he scampers to his right, he's caught on the broadcast yelling, while running away from defenders in the middle of a play, "God dammit, Donald!" to cap off one of the more bizarre sequences in NFL history.

Brown didn't do much to make up for this gaffe either, turning six carries into just 10 yards while adding another 15 yards on two catches. Thankfully, Indianapolis would go on to win this one, 20-3, en route to an eventual Super Bowl appearance.

And "Damnit Donald", as he became affectionately known to football fans, went on to play three more seasons with the Colts and two with the San Diego Chargers to close out his NFL career.
