Five Fun Facts About Peyton Manning

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on January 27, 2014

Peyton Manning has had a long and successful career in the NFL. For years with the Indianapolis Colts, he was statistically one of the best quarterbacks the league had ever seen. Then after sitting out the 2011 season due to a neck injury, he seemed to pick up where he left off after joining the Denver Broncos. Here are five fun facts about this truly great quarterback.

A Spring Birthday

Peyton Manning was born on March 24, 1976. Other NFL players who share his March 24th birthday include Danny Trevathan, Renaldo Nehemiah, Mike Doss, Scott Brunner, Jeremy Cain, Aaron Brooks, Rolland Lawrence, Vaughan Johnson, Woody Bennett, Mike Vanderjagt, Max Runager, Mike Adams, and Larry Wilson.

His First Game Ever

In his first NFL game, a 24-15 Colts loss to the Dolphins, Peyton Manning completed 21 of 37 passes for 302 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions.

A Couple Of Rushing Touchdown Droughts

Peyton Manning scored nine rushing touchdowns between 1998 and 2002. He then failed to score a rushing touchdown during the 2003, 2004, and 2005 seasons. He then scored eight rushing touchdowns between 2006 and 2008, before not scoring another until 2013 with the Broncos.

The First With A New Team

The first touchdown pass Peyton Manning threw with the Denver Broncos came in Week 1 of the 2012 season in a win over the Steelers. It happened in the third quarter when he connected on a 71 yard TD pass to Demaryius Thomas.

The First To Pick Him Off

The first player to get an interception off of Peyton Manning after he became the quarterback of the Broncos was William Moore of the Falcons. He returned it to the one yard line and running back Michael Turner scored for Atlanta a few plays later.

5 Fun Facts About Philadelphia Eagles’ Nick Foles’ 7 TD Pass Game

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on November 4, 2013

Nick Foles lit the NFL world on fire yesterday when he threw 7 touchdown passes in a 49-20 victory over the visiting Oakland Raiders. Here’s a quick look at five fun facts regarding his amazing performance of a feat that had only been accomplished six times in history. The previous six QBs to pull this off were Sid Luckman in 1943, Adrian Burk in 1954, George Blanda in 1961, Y.A. Tittle in 1962, Joe Kapp in 1969, and Peyton Manning in 2013.

#1 – Once he tied the record, Nick Foles made the Philadelphia Eagles the first franchise to have two different quarterbacks toss 7 TD passes in a game as he joined Adrian Burk who’d done it back in 1954 against the Redskins.

#2 – Understandably overshadowed by his record tying performance was the fact that Nick Foles threw for more passing yards, a total of 406, than he had ever thrown for in one game before. He also became the sixth quarterback in Eagles history to have a 400 yard game, joining Sonny Jurgensen, Randall Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick, and Vince Young.

#3 – The 139 receiving yards put up by Riley Cooper in the victory over the Raiders was a career personal best for him as well. This topped his previous best of 120 yards just a few weeks earlier in a win over the Buccaneers and was the second 100 yard receiving game of his career.

#4 – Of the seven quarterbacks who have thrown 7 TD passes in one game, only three have done so without throwing a single interception: Y.A. Tittle, Peyton Manning, and Nick Foles.

#5 – Riley Cooper was a favorite in this performance, hauling in three of Nick Foles’ 7 TD passes. Just less than 50 years ago when Philadelphia’s Adrian Burk tossed his seven TD passes it was the Eagles’ Pete Pihos who had caught three of them for scores.

Five Fun Facts From Week 1 Of The 2013 NFL Season

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on September 11, 2013

1. The First Time Ever

The Kansas City Chiefs opened up the 2013 season with a 28-2 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. This was the first time in history that an NFL game had ended with that score.

2. Way To Start It Off!

When Colin Kaepernick threw for 412 yards in the 49ers season opening win over the Packers on September 8, 2013, it was the first 400 yard game in Week 1 in franchise history.

3. 8? Only 8?

Russell Wilson took the NFL by storm in 2012 and opened up 2013 by guiding his Seahawks to an opening week win over the Carolina Panthers. Wilson made a name for himself not just throwing but running with the ball in 2012, racking up three games where he finished with over 50 yards rushing. He had eight rushing yards in that opening week victory over the Panthers. That was less rushing yards than he had in any game during the whole 2012 season.

4. And He’s Done It Twice!

In the 49ers win over the Packers in Week 1 of the 2013 season, San Francisco receiver Anquan Boldin racked up 208 receiving yards. This was only the fourth time a receiver had caught over 200 yards worth of passes on the opening game of the season since the AFL-NFL merger of 1970. The other three times it was done was by Wes Chandler of the Saints in 1979, Irving Fryar of the Dolphins in 1994, and Anquan Boldin himself while playing for Arizona in 2003. This makes him the only player ever to have done this twice. He also did it the second time 10 years and one day after doing it the first time.

5. A Family Thing

Eli and Peyton Manning both threw for over 400 yards in their team’s games in Week 1 of the 2013 NFL season. This means that when they meet this coming weekend that it will be the first time in NFL history that two quarterbacks face each other in a game with both coming off of a 400 yard passing performance.

5 Fun Facts About The Denver Broncos

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on July 12, 2013

The Denver Broncos hit the stage in 1960 as members of the brand new American Football League. All those years later and they have sure made some great memories for their fans. Here are five fun facts about this great team, the Denver Broncos.

Who Caught The First?

John Elway threw 300 touchdown passes during the regular season as a member of the Denver Broncos. The first one he ever threw came in the fourth quarter of a loss to the Eagles in 1983, it went for 33 yards and was caught by Rick Parros. This was the only TD pass Elway ever threw to Parros.

A Slow Start

It took the Broncos just three seasons to have their very first non-losing season. That 1962 AFL team put up a record of 7-7 but going .500 is not the same as having a winning record. The Broncos would not post their first winning season until 1973, their 14th year in football, when they went 7-5.

Accuracy Matters

The first, and so far only, kicker the Denver Broncos ever had who would attempt at least 20 field goals in a season and make over 90% of them was Jason Elam in 2006. He made 27 of 29 that year for a 93.1% field goal percentage. Elam played 15 seasons with the Broncos and that 2006 season was his 14th with the team.

None Better

The 1997 Denver Broncos were the first in team history to lead the NFL in points scored. That team went 12-4, scored 472 points, gave up 287 points, and won the Super Bowl behind the running of Terrell Davis in 31-24 victory over the Packers.

Throw It To Me!

Rod Smith was a Pro Bowl quality receiver that played his entire 12 year NFL career with the Broncos. He caught 68 touchdown passes during his career there and they were thrown to him by seven different quarterbacks. 22 of them were thrown to him by Brian Griese, 19 by John Elway, 17 by Jake Plummer, Steve Beuerlein threw four to him, Gus Frerotte threw him three, Bubby Brister threw two his way, and Jay Cutler threw him the last touchdown reception of his career.
