We all know some of the obvious trivia from last year:
Peyton Manning threw all sorts of TD’s
Joe Flacco threw all sorts of INT’s
And Seattle won a little game against Denver to end the season
And since we’ve still got a couple months until they start playing meaningful football games, why not a little trivia distraction for this 4th of July weekend?
The questions are very recent, and are not too obscure.
If you have paid attention to the NFL at all over the last year or two, you should do fairly well.
Post your answers in the Comments section.
The Fanpost will be updated at a later date with the correct answers.
Remember, this is a trivia challenge. The point is not to go look up all the answers on the internet, and post them. The point is to post what you THINK the correct answers are... before looking them up.
