NFL superlatives on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Posted on

NBC

The NFL season is officially underway and what better way to get to know the players better than with some superlatives?

On Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show, various NFL players took some time before the season started to tell us a little bit more about themselves in recurring segment “Tonight Show Superlatives.”

Previous versions of this sketch have included NBA All-Stars and the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Some of the highlights of the segment included redheaded quarterback Andy Dalton saying he was “most likely to be the love child of Ed Sheeran and the Firefox logo,” and veteran quarterback Peyton Manning revealing he was “most likely to have to explain to a rookie what a VCR was.”

Meanwhile, Rob Gronkowski was simply labeled “Human Minion.”
