Remember when the whole nation was talking about Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos because he kept yelling “Omaha” at the line of scrimmage during games? Well, the same thing is sort of happening with Russell Wilson after he was heard yelling “pizza” during the Broncos win over the Browns this weekend. 

FOX Sports microphones caught Wilson using the phrase “Pizza! Pizza!”, which caught the attention of many around social media, including Little Caesar’s…

The “Pizza, Pizza!” call worked too as Wilson was able to get a 19-yard pickup out of the designed run that he audibled into. Denver would eventually find the end zone on the drive when Wilson took it himself again for a two-yard touchdown run on 2nd-and-goal.

Wilson was also heard yelling “Pepsi” at another point in he game, but the “pizza” audible is the one that seems to be catching on, and hopefully helping the Broncos to many more wins like “Omaha” did for Peyton’s teams back when.
