Peyton Manning's jersey top seller in five states

7/9/2015

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- If jersey sales were an election, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning would carry a wide swath in the western United States.

According to the Jersey Report, which tracked the best-selling NFL jerseys in each state for the 2014 season, Manning's No. 18 was the top seller in five states. Manning topped sales in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and South Dakota this past season as the Broncos finished 12-4 before losing to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC's Divisional round of the playoffs.

Take a look at the map here:

Manning was one of 16 quarterbacks to lead at least one state in sales. Some of the quirkier ones along the way: The Colts' Andrew Luck led Nevada in sales, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr led Montana in sales -- Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler is a Montana native, but with just 30 career pass attempts he doesn't have the résumé to crack his home state -- Cam Newton led Hawaii in sales and Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, a Texas native who played at Texas A&M, led Oklahoma in sales.
