Monday Morning QB

img19826834The Denver Broncos defeated the Cleveland Browns in overtime 26-23 Sunday, but quarterback Peyton Manning continued to struggle, he was intercepted three more times. Manning has been picked off 10 times through six games, he’s played five entire seasons with 10 interceptions or fewer. The only other time he’s reached double-digit picks after six games was 1998, his rookie year, when he threw a career worst 28 interceptions.

Manning threw 23 interceptions in 2001, the only other time he went over 20. Entering the 2015 season, he had averaged 14.6 interceptions per season. Manning’s QB rating dropped to 72.5 after Sunday when he finished 26 for 48 for 290 yards, one touchdown, and of course, those three interceptions.1214_PManning_JLC1_inside

His accuracy has also been an issue, Manning is connecting on 61.6% of his throws in 2015, his lowest rate since he was a rookie (56.7%). He has never thrown less than 26 touchdowns in a single season and he’s on pace to throw 19 touchdown passes. His seven touchdowns are his fewest through six games since, yes, 1998. Manning has averaged 33.1 touchdown passes in his 16 full seasons. The bright side is at the end of Sunday’s game, the Denver Broncos became 6-0. That’s the sixth time Peyton Manning has been a part of a 6-0 start, two times now with the Broncos.
