Peyton Manning accomplished two things Sunday: He earned his third trip to the Super Bowl with a win over the Patriots and he helped raise a good chunk of change for charity in the process.

How'd he do that?

By yelling "Omaha!" 31 times during the Broncos' victory

Earlier this week five Omaha business joined forces to contribute $500 for every time the QB said "Omaha" before taking a snap. Right before kickoff another company got in on the action and the total for each mention rose to $800.

That means $24,800 will be donated to ''Peyback Foundation,'' Manning's foundation for at-risk youth.
