Whenever you play the Ravens and people mistake you for Kyle Boller and Boller for your older brother, you've probably had a rough day. And adding insult to Eli Manning's 0.0 passer rating was the fact that Boller threw 4 TD passes and when Coughlin finally pulled Manning late in the 4th quarter, Kurt Warner came in and promptly led a drive that resulted in a Tiki Barber TD run. For the season, Manning is completing 38% of his passes and sporting a 33.8 passer rating, and next week he faces the Steelers. Luckily the Chargers are 10-3 and headed for a division title.
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
