Research Notes

  • When Peyton Manning throws for 3 TD and 0 Int, he's a pretty good bet to win. In fact, entering today Manning was 31-4 in those games. Tonight was just his 5th loss after a performance like that and he's fallen to an eclectic mix of QBs.

  • With his 1st-quarter TD pass to Wes Welker, Tom Brady moved past Brett Favre into sole possession of the 3rd-longest streak of games with a passing TD.
