Peyton Manning Sets All-Time Passing Record in a Career-Worst Start

peyton manning passing record

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning entered Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs two yards shy of Brett Favre’s record of 71,838 passing yards. And on a 4-yard toss to running back Ronnie Hillman, Manning became the new all-time leader.

But that was just about the only highlight in a dismal game for the 39-year-old quarterback.

The San Jose Sharks fell to the Anaheim Ducks 1-0 on Saturday night at the SAP Center, ending their three-game home winning streak to start the season. San Jose had a laid-back start, and Ducks goalie Anton Khudobin settled in quickly to stop all 31 Sharks shots.

A season after reaching the Western Conference Finals, the Ducks have started slow – their shots have not going in the net. But they arrived in San Jose hungry. 

“They came to play, and we knew it would be a physical, hard, checking game out there,” said Sharks defenseman Marc-Édouard Vlasic.

Nine weeks into the season, it’s clear that we’re not dealing with the same old Bengals. Those willing also-rans who have made the playoffs four straight years, only to bow out meekly in their first game are no more. This year’s Bengals are explosive and balanced on offense, highlighted by quarterback Andy Dalton’s star turn. Another key player on the offense, however, has also turned into one of the best at his position. It’s that player that we examine further in this week’s Fact or Fiction.

seattle seahawks midseason report kam chancellor

Fans and analysts alike set high expectations for the 2015 Seattle Seahawks. Coming off back-to-back Super Bowl appearances and having retained most of their core players, the Hawks seemed destined to soar atop the NFC once again.  Eight games into the season, Seattle is 4–4, tied with the Rams in second place in the NFC West. Why? Let’s take a look.

Fourth Quarter Struggles

The most glaring problem the Seahawks have had is closing out games in the final quarter. In Weeks 5 and 6, playing Cincinnati and Carolina, Seattle gave up leads of 17 and nine points respectively. 

The Hawks also barely squeezed out a fourth-quarter win in Week 8 over Dallas in a game they were on the verge of losing. Seattle has been outscored 58–33 in the final period of games this year, something coaches must address for the team to be able to contend in the NFC.

Jarrett Jack does not stay in one place for very long. Just take a look at his summer. From D.C. to L.A. to Las Vegas, the Brooklyn Nets' point guard zigzagged across the country to make appearances, visit friends, and look for new places to work out as he prepared for the 2015--16 season, his second with the team.

"When you're grinding during the season, you see the same practice gym," says Jack, who alters his workouts whenever he travels. "In L.A., I'll do sprints on the beach, which is something I can't do when I'm in Vegas. Switching up cities keeps my mind fresh and gets me in a good space."
