Inside The Numbers: Eli Manning's streak

Posted Nov 6, 2012

QB Eli Manning started his 128th regular season game against the Steelers

On Sunday in MetLife Stadium, Eli Manning started his 128th regular season game, which is the equivalent of eight full NFL seasons. He has started those games consecutively, which is the longest streak among the league’s active quarterbacks and the third-longest in history. Only Brett Favre (297) and his older brother, Peyton Manning (208), have started more consecutive games among quarterbacks than Manning, who is 75-53 (.586) in the regular season.
 
What follows is how Manning’s statistics compare with all other active quarterbacks at the 128-game mark, as well as Favre, Hall of Famer Dan Marino, Archie Manning and Phil Simms, whose Giants career passing records will soon be broken by Manning. Thanks to the Elias Sports Bureau for providing the statistics.


Active Quarterbacks
Name W-L Att Com Yds TD Int Rate
Eli Manning 75-53 4,230 2,482 29,939 197 138 82.4
Tom Brady 98-30 4,240 2,691 31,050 228 99 93.7
Drew Brees 72-56 4,424 2,882 32,454 215 120 91.8
Matt Hasselbeck 69-59 4,163 2,505 28,900 172 121 82.8
Peyton Manning 80-48 4,333 2,769 33,189 244 130 93.5
Retired Quarterbacks
Phil Simms 78-50 3,771 2,055 27,155 165 135 77.2
Brett Favre 83-45 4,396 2,686 31,142 236 142 87.0
Archie Manning 35-90 3,253 1,803 21,297 111 149 67.8
Dan Marino 79-49 4,510 2,662 33,807 252 144 87.8

*Eli Manning’s totals are only for his 128 starts and do not include the three completions and 66 yards he had on nine attempts as a reserve in his NFL debut at Philadelphia on Sept. 12, 2004.

*All five active quarterbacks with at least 128 games have played in a Super Bowl. Hasselbeck is the only one of the five who was not victorious at least once in the title game.

*Of the nine quarterbacks listed here, Archie Manning is the only one never to play in a Super Bowl.

*Eli and Peyton each have more than twice as many victories as their father did at this point in their careers.

*Including his totals from his first game, Eli Manning has 30,005 passing yards in eight seasons plus nine games. Archie Manning finished his 14-year career with 23,911 yards.

*Eli has 197 touchdown passes and 138 interceptions. His father’s career totals were 125 touchdown passes and 173 interceptions.

*The difference in the numbers posted by the two Giants quarterbacks indicates how much more of a passing league the NFL is now compared to Simms’ era. In the same number of starts, Manning has thrown 459 more passes, has 427 more completions and 2,784 more yards - and has three fewer regular-season victories.

*Manning’s 75-53 record breaks down 37-28 at home and 38-25 on the road.

*Now in the second half of his ninth season, Manning is on his way to setting all of the Giants’ major career passing records:
Name Attempts Completions Yards Touchdowns
Phil Simms 4,647 2,576 33,462 199
Eli Manning 4,239 2,485 30,005 197

*The franchise leader in interceptions is Charlie Conerly with 167. Simms had 157 and Manning has 138.

*Manning holds the team record with 25 regular-season 300-yard games. Simms had 22.

*Manning’s 128 consecutive regular-season starts is 24 games longer than the current runner-up, San Diego’s Philip Rivers – the player for whom he was traded on draft day in 2004.

Consecutive regular-season games started (active):
Name Games
Eli Manning 128
Philip Rivers 104
Joe Flacco 72
Tom Brady 56
Mark Sanchez 43
Matt Ryan 43

Ron Jaworski PHI 1977-1984 116 games
Tom Brady NE 2001-2008 111 games
Joe Ferguson BUF 1977-1984 107 games

*Since Manning made his starting debut on Nov. 21, 2004, 104 different quarterbacks have started an NFL game.

*Manning has started against 65 different quarterbacks in the regular season. His highest victory total is against Jason Campbell (6-0) and Tony Romo (6-5). He is 1-1 vs. Brady, 0-4 vs. Brees, 1-2 vs. Hasselbeck and 0-2 vs. Peyton Manning.

*Lawrence Tynes leads the NFL with 26 field goals and 102 points. His closest pursuer in both categories is former Giant Matt Bryant, now with Atlanta, who has 20 field goals and 82 points.

*Tynes is the first NFL player to score at least 100 points in the first nine games since San Diego running back LaDainian Tomlinson in 2006. More significantly, according to Elias, he is the only kicker since the 1970 merger with at least 100 points in nine games. He might be the only pure kicker in history to accomplish the feat, because prior to the merger, many kickers also played other positions.

*Tynes is also one of four kickers in history with at least 26 field goals in nine games:
Player Team Year Field Goals
Lawrence Tynes Giants 2012 26
Neil Rackers Arizona 2005 28
Olindo Mare Miami 1999 27
Richie Cunningham Dallas 1997 26

*Tynes kicked two field goals Sunday against Pittsburgh, the last NFL team against which he has booted a three-pointer. He is one of 17 kickers with a field goal against all 32 NFL teams.

*The Giants totaled 24 first downs in their last two games (11 at Dallas, 13 vs. Pittsburgh). That is their lowest two-game total since Dec. 5 and 12, 2004, when they had 18 combined first downs in losses at Washington (seven) and Baltimore (11).

*The Giants did not score a touchdown in the second half of either of their last two games, the first time they did not do that in consecutive games since it happened in three in a row from Oct. 28-Nov. 18, 2007. The Giants won two of those games.

*The Giants’ plus-14 turnover differential is second in the NFL behind Chicago’s plus-16. Their 26 takeaways are second to the Bears’ 28. The two teams are tied for the league lead with 17 interceptions.

*All four NFC East teams lost in Week Nine, the first time that’s happened since Week 13 last year.
