Only Peyton Manning could make Omaha this popular...— Faux Peyton Manning (@FauxPManning) January 12, 2014
The power of Peyton Manning: "OMAHA" is now trending in the US.— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) January 12, 2014

So what does Omaha mean? It can mean a bunch of things. Allow Brian Urlacher and Randy Moss to explain.
Oh, and was Peyton happy after Sunday's win? Yes, he was downright giddy about it (hit the microphone button in the upper left of the Vine video below to hear from Manning).
