GIF: 49ers' Kenneth Acker interceptions Peyton Manning, casually throws live ball over his shoulder

New, comments

The second-year defensive back forgot to take the football with him.

Peyton Manning and Demaryius Thomas haven't been on the same page this preseason, and 49ers cornerback Kenneth Acker benefited from it on Saturday, intercepting a Manning pass intended for DT.

It's what Acker did after the play that has people talking.

Niners Nation called it a "bone-headed but thankfully harmless decision."

The Broncos, meanwhile, are leading 5-0 (thanks to a field goal and DeMarcus Ware safety sack). Denver is driving and poised to score again.
