Research Notes

  • Peyton Manning (93.7) and Tony Romo (92.1) both posted Total QBRs over 90 while tallying more than 40 action plays. It is only the second game since 2006 in which two opposing quarterbacks each posted a Total QBR greater than 90 with that many action plays (David Garrard and Matt Schaub - Week 4, 2008).Peyton Manning has a Total QBR of at least 93.7 in 3 straight games. Aaron Rodgers is the only other quarterback with a Total QBR of at least 93.7 in 3 straight games (Week 6-9 in 2011) during the last 8 seasons. Manning also did it with the Colts from Week 4 to Week 7 in 2009. Romo's Total QBR Sunday was the highest for a starting quarterback in a loss this season.

  • Peyton Manning had his 10th career 400-yard passing game, tied with Drew Brees for the 2nd-most in NFL history.

  • From Elias: Cowboys are 2nd team in AFL/NFL history with 3 players with 120+ receiving yards and at least one receiving TD in a game. Oilers also did it on November 19, 1961 against the New York Titans.

  • Tony Romo is 5th QB in NFL history with 500 passing yards and 5 TD passes in game.

  • Dez Bryant had six catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns. The Cowboys are now 1-7 in Bryant's career when he catches multiple touchdown passes.

  • - Peyton Manning completed 78.6% of his 42 attempts for 414 yards and four touchdowns. None of those numbers are a season high.- Broncos receivers gained 205 yards after catch. 39 different quarterbacks this year have failed to reach 205 passing yards in a game (minimum five attempts). However, that also is not a Broncos' season high (259 YAC, Week 1).- Manning threw his 20th touchdown pass of the season on Sunday. Manning's 20th pass last season was in Week 9, and he had thrown six interceptions by the end of that game. Manning's first interception of the season was Sunday.- Denver's 51 points was its most in a game since, well, last Sunday (52 points vs Eagles). The Jaguars have 51 points this season, and the Buccaneers have 44 (in four games). No other team has scored 50 in a game this season, and the Seahawks and Patriots are the only teams to do it twice since the start of last year.

  • Tony Romo's interception with 2:04 left in the 4th quarter Sunday dropped the Cowboys win probability by 25.9%. Another costly interception for Romo over the last few seasons.

  • Peyton Manning (93.7) and Tony Romo (92.1) both posted Total QBR's over 90 while tallying over 40 action plays. It is only the second game since 2006 in which two opposing quarterbacks each posted a Total QBR over 90 in a game where they had that many action plays (David Garrard and Matt Schaub - Week 4, 2008).

  • Tony Romo's lone interception Sunday was the 23rd fourth-quarter interception of his career. The Cowboys have lost each of the last eight games in which Romo has thrown a fourth-quarter interception, with six of those eight losses coming by seven points or less.

  • Tony Romo is the first player in Cowboys history to pass for 500 yards in a game. Each of the six games in which Dallas had an individual throw for at least 410 yards came in a loss.

  • Tony Romo is the fifth player in NFL history to throw for 500 yards and 5 TD in a game but joins Matthew Stafford as the only players to do so in a losing effort.
