A Look Back at Last Weekend



WHAT TO LOOK FORA LOOK BACK

 

EARLY RISER: Denver quarterback PEYTON MANNING passed for 327 yards and four touchdowns in the Broncos’ 52-20 win over Philadelphia. Manning has 16 touchdown passes, the most through the first four games of a season in NFL history.

 

In his first 20 games with the Broncos, Manning has 6,129 yards and 53 touchdowns. Those marks are the most by a player in his first 20 games with a team.

 

Denver has won 15 consecutive regular-season games, including a 4-0 record to open the 2013 season. Manning has led his teams to a 4-0 start six times in his career, the most in the Super Bowl era.

GREAT GRAHAM: New Orleans tight end JIMMY GRAHAM has 313 receiving yards in his past two games, the most by a tight end in a two-game span in a single season since 1996.

 

Last week, Graham had nine receptions for 134 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints’ 31-7 victory over Arizona. In Week 2, Graham tallied 179 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches in a 16-14 defeat of Tampa Bay.
