Peyton Manning vs. JAX

Recommended Posts

I mentioned this in another thread, so please forgive me if anyone thinks this is stupid. But I noticed an interesting trend over the last few years regarding Peyton Manning facing Jacksonville. I was actually toying with the notion of benching him in favor of Tony Romo this week, when I noticed this:

 

2003

Game 1 vs. JAX - 21/33, 216 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT

Game 2 @ JAX - 28/45, 347 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT

 

2004

Game 1 @ JAX - 20/29, 220 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT

Game 2 vs. JAX - 27/39, 368 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT

 

2005

Game 1 vs. JAX - 13/28, 122 yds, 0 TD, 1 INT

Game 2 @ JAX - 24/36, 324 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT

 

So, it looks like over the last three seasons, Manning fares better the second time around against JAX. I'm sure a lot of other people noticed this, but I hope I'm not reading too much into it.

 

In the first game this year, at home, Manning went 14/31, 219 yds and 1 TD (but he added a rushing score). My playoff spot is riding on this week... win and I'm in. I'm sure Romo will be in a shootout with the Saints as everyone predicts, but I'm hoping Manning can get me into the dance... especially since I'm down 26 points thanks to my opponent (coincidentally the league leader) starting Willie Parker!!! :D

 

Wish me luck.
