The Seattle Seahawks defense ate Peyton Manning alive, so he's building up his confidence with a secondary he can beat: elementary school kids.

Nice work by his receiver to clear out some space with a double-juke, then explode into the open field for the catch. Good presence of mind to keep both feet in bounds, too. As for the defender?
