Peyton Manning earns charity $24k for 'Omaha' calls

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning earned his charity $24,800 after yelling the word "Ohama" 31 times in the game against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Broncos ran out 26-16 winners to wrap up the AFC championship and book their place in the 2014 Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks - and in the process Manning's Peyback Foundation secured a cheque worth almost $25,000.

The city of Omaha pledged to donate money every time Manning shouted the word during the fixture - after he did exactly that at the line of the scrimmage against the San Diego Chargers last week - and, according to the NFL on CBS's Twitter account, he said it a total of 31 times.

Pretty good going from Manning, who will be one of the players to watch in this year's Super Bowl, which takes place on February 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
