Peyton Manning Sets Another Record (Chart)
Every pro football fan knows Peyton Manning is a sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer. He has set numerous records – some with curious subtexts.
Throwing for 330 yards yesterday against the Houston Texans, Manning set a record for most career 300 yard passing games – 64, topping Dan Marino. Unfortunately, for the 26th time, Manning’s team came out on the losing end in those games.
There are 16 players who have at least 30 300-yard passing games, and Manning’s .594 winning percentage in those games ranks only 10th best. Over the course of Manning’s career, his teams have amassed a .673 overall winning percentage, so this is a bit surprising.
Tom Brady leads the group of 16 at 39-8 (.830), the second-best mark belonging to Donovan McNabb at 23-6-1 (.767) and, on the downside, 3 have a losing record in their 300 yard games.
