What Is Wrong With Peyton Manning's Forehead?

Does anyone know what is happening here? Is this a side effect of neck surgeries?

Before Sunday's game between the Broncos and the Patriots, it became clear that something weird was going on with Peyton Manning's head.

Remember this photo was taken BEFORE THE GAME. So it's not even like he would have been wearing his helmet a ton leading up to this.

Seriously, does anyone know what is happening here?

• Is this the first stage of an elaborate face tattoo?

• Did Peyton fall asleep at a party and have someone put their balls on his head, only to discover Peyton is allergic to balls?

• Is a horn about to pop through his forehead, making him the world's second unicorn/quarterback? (History has erased Otto Graham's horn from our memories, but some of us know the truth.)

If you know what's going on here, please tell me. I need answers.
