A look back at all the NFL records set by Peyton Manning

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is set to retire from football, which means all of his historic stats will now be set in stone. 

"We've got the greatest fans out here right now," Manning said at the Broncos' Super Bowl victory celebration in Denver. "These fans have been great all season long."

As Manning exits, what might be the biggest part of his legacy is the staggering amount of records he leaves behind.

>> RELATED: ESPN source: Peyton Manning to announce retirement Monday

Let's start with the basics. No one has thrown for more yards than Manning in NFL history — both in a single season and across a career. The same goes for passing touchdowns.

Manning also tops record books for regular-season wins by a quarterback, though he shares that mark with Brett Favre. But when you factor in the playoffs, Manning pulls away into first place with a nice round total of 200.

This makes sense given Manning has made the playoffs 15 times, which happens to be more than any other quarterback in history

Manning's records aren't just about piling up stats — they extend to clutch performances as well. Manning is the NFL's all-time leader in come-from-behind wins and game-winning drives. 

There are always NFL fans that will bring up Manning’s lack of postseason success amid all these regular-season numbers. But after his second Super Bowl title, he's got more rings than Brett Favre, Kurt Warner or Dan Marino. 

Plus, Manning is the only starting quarterback ever to win a Super Bowl title with two different teams. 

Altogether, it's not the worst haul after 18 seasons in the NFL for the five-time MVP. That, by the way, is a record.

Police in Florida twice used a stun gun to incapacitate Los Angeles Rams running back Tre Mason during an arrest on drug and traffic charges Saturday, according to multiple media reports.

An officer started pursuing Mason when he clocked the former Auburn University star going about 75 mph in a 35 mph zone Saturday afternoon, WPLG reported. Mason swerved to avoid an accident and, after a short chase, finally stopped the 2011 Porsche he was driving near Diplomat Landing in Hollywood, the TV station reported.

He refused to get out of the Porsche. In a police report, an officer said Mason smirked while refusing to give his name or identification, the Associated Press reported. The officer smelled marijuana in the Porsche, warned Mason he would be arrested if he refused to identify himself and called for backup, according to the wire service.

The officer warned Mason he would be shot with a stun gun if he refused to comply. He continued to brace himself against the car's floor, seat and steering wheel as the officer struggled to get him out of the vehicle. Two other officers joined the effort to no avail, the AP reported, and an officer hit Mason in the torso with a Taser.

"The defendant showed unusual resistance to the first three seconds of the Taser application with little pain compliance," authorities said in a police report, according to WPLG.

He was stunned a second time in the pelvic area when he continued to resist.

After the struggle, authorities transported Mason to a local hospital because he had been stunned, the AP reported. There, bond was posted for him.

"We are very disappointed to learn of an incident involving Tre Mason in the Miami, Florida, area Saturday afternoon,” the Rams said in a statement posted to NFL.com. “We are in the process of obtaining more information about the facts surrounding this incident and will have no further comment at this time."

Police arrested Mason on charges of resisting an officer, possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis, reckless driving and failure to register a motor vehicle, according to Broward County court records.

Mason was a third-round pick by the St. Louis Rams in the 2014 NFL Draft. The team has since announced it would be relocating to Los Angeles.

NFL quarterback Jameis Winston and his girlfriend, Breion Allen, were baptized together at a Pro Athletes Outreach event in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Friday, TMZ first reported.

With other pro athletes from several sports watching from around a large pool, Winston and Allen were quickly lowered backwards into the water at the same time by two men.

Pro Athletes Outreach says the event offers a chance for “single and married pros and their spouses or fiancees (to) gather each year for a few days of unique community, deep interaction with Jesus, and simply to reconnect, as couples or with their friends around the league. “

Winston won the Heisman Trophy as a college player at Florida State, leading the Seminoles to the national championship in 2014. He was the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Bucs and signed a four-year, $25 million contract. He played in the Pro Bowl at the end of his first season.

But Winston’s football career has also been plagued by off-the-field controversies, including incidents where he allegedly shoplifted soda and crab legs, and an allegation of sexual assault.

"The funniest thing just happened (to) me in Redmond," Chancellor wrote. "I went to go get info on a gym that was closed and 2 ladies called the cops on me."

Chancellor said the women called police because he was looking into the glass, asking for help in an attempt to get a phone number.

When police arrived at the Redmond Athletic Club, all was cleared up quickly.

"Good thing the cops know I'm a good guy and stealing isn't in my blood," Chancellor wrote. "I work for everything I get."

Officials with the Redmond Police Department said two women called police when five men came up to the gym and started looking in windows and rattling the doors.

The club recently went out of business and the gym had closed.

Police spoke with Kam Chancellor and the other four men. They said Chancellor was interested in working out at the facility.

A 14-second video posted on YouTube and Twitter Monday by the Seattle Seahawks showed Lynch and former teammate Breno Giacomini in Cairo. They’re there as part of a 10-player group for the annual American Football Without Barriers camp. The camp works "to help globalize the sport," according to the Seahawks.

It was Lynch's third trip with AFWB.

Lynch, 29, hasn’t spent a dime of his nearly $50 million salary earned over 10 years in the league, NFL.com reporter Ian Rapopory previously told Seattle’s KJR 950 sports radio. A report said Lynch has been living on money from endorsement deals.

Not bad, Beast Mode.

After 18 seasons and two Super Bowl titles, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is reportedly retiring. 

>> RELATED: A look back at all the NFL records set by Peyton Manning

Manning plans to announce his retirement Monday in a news conference, a source told ESPN. 

Manning's retirement wouldn't come as a shock. The soon-to-be 40-year-old is the oldest quarterback ever to start a Super Bowl.

After the Broncos won the national championship, on-field cameras caught Manning telling Pats coach Bill Belichick, "This might be my last rodeo."

Manning will exit as the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns and total wins as a quarterback.

But Manning's postseason legacy has always been a point of criticism, which made his team's Super Bowl win that much more important. Manning now has two Super Bowl rings after Denver's victory. 

There's a reason Manning waited until after the season was over to make this decision. Manning said at Super Bowl Opening Night he didn't want a farewell tour throughout an entire season. 

And just because Manning might be retiring from playing doesn't necessarily mean he's done with football. 

There's speculation he could consider a front office job, with one report from CBS highlighting Cleveland and Tennessee as possible landing spots. 

“Few have left their marks on a sport as Peyton Manning has," Indianapolis Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay said in a statement. "Simply put, he revolutionized NFL football. Peyton energized it as had no one before him, he made it more fun for our fans and (he) made the game better. Off the field, Peyton has been a tremendous ambassador for the game and the epitome of someone who gives back to the community. He is the most recognizable face in the history of the NFL and perhaps its most popular. I will miss seeing #18 on the field on Sundays, and I am proud and thankful for all he’s done for the Colts, our community and the NFL. On behalf of Colts and NFL fans worldwide, I thank Peyton and congratulate him on an incredible career.”

Manning played for the Colts for 14 seasons between 1998 and 2011. He began playing for the Broncos in 2012.

Congratulations Peyton, on an incredible career. You changed the game forever and made everyone around you better. It's been an honor.Posted by Tom Brady on Sunday, March 6, 2016

Court document reveals allegations, details of alleged sexual assault involving Peyton Manning

The New York Daily News released a 74-page document Saturday from a defamation suit levied against Peyton and Archie Manning in 2001 that includes several allegations of an incident between Peyton Manning and a female member of the University of Tennessee’s training staff in 1996.

The document includes the ensuing steps the Mannings and other members of the university allegedly took to discredit her or falsify what occurred. The document, entitled “Facts of the Case” was filed by Jamie Naughright’s legal counsel in a defamation suit stemming from a book co-authored by the Mannings and ghost written by John Underwood called “Manning: A Father, His Sons and a Football Legacy,” which was released in September 2000.

The allegations from the document, which can be seen in full here, include:

  • There was a previous incident with Manning and Naughright in 1994, during Manning’s first semester on campus. The details of this incident were sealed. “Counsel for Peyton Manning has requested that certain exhibits and deposition testimony relating to the 1994 incident be designated as part of the “confidential record” and not be publicly revealed,” the document states. (page 10)
  • Manning did not “moon” Naughright during the Feb. 29, 1996 incident, as was suggested in the book, but rather placed his “gluteus maximus, the rectum, the testicles and the area between the testicles” on her face while she attempted to push him off. (pages 14-15)
  • Another player, Malcolm Saxon, who was present and witnessed the incident, lost his eligibility, because he did not conform and go along with an altered version of the incident put forward by Naughright’s boss, Mike Rollo, and Manning. (pages 15-20)  
  • The school asked Naughright to say that a black player had exposed himself to her and that — not the incident with Manning — was why she took medical leave. (pages 18-19)
  • Manning twice taunted Naughright about the incident at later dates, pulling his pants down and sitting on another person’s face while she was in sight. (page 21)
  • The Mannings made up a story about Naughright calling other players expletives to corroborate the assertion in the book “Manning” that she “had a vulgar mouth,” and no one who was present corroborated this story under oath. (pages 24-33)
  • Archie Manning told Underwood, the ghost writer of the book, that his son told him Naughright was having sexual relations with athletes, and no one corroborated this claim under oath. (pages 35-36)
  • Naughright’s boss, Rollo, called her “[expletive] bumper,” or “bumper,” a derogatory phrase directed at a lesbian (though she is not), and referred to a Tennessee women’s team as the “Lady Lickers.”  (pages 5-8)

While the previously reported incident between Manning and Naughright took place 20 years ago, it has been referenced in a current federal lawsuit levied against the University of Tennessee.

The lawsuit, filed by six women who name five current and former Tennessee athletes, claims that the university “enabled an environment of bad behavior and used a disciplinary system that favored the players,” citing more than a dozen incidents, including ones that hadn’t been previously reported.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs name Tennessee athletics director Dave Hart and football coach Butch Jones among those who were “personally aware” of previous sexual assaults and rapes committed by football players, but protected the interest of the football team rather than the victims of the crimes.

The lawsuit also alleges a former Tennessee player, Drae Bowles, was assaulted by teammates for driving one of alleged sexual assault victims to the hospital encouraging her to go to the police. Another player told police one of their teammates had put a “hit out” on Bowles.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank has been receiving treatment for prostate cancer.

>> Read more trending stories  

“In December I was diagnosed with a treatable form of prostate cancer,” Blank said in a statement on Tuesday. “Over the last several weeks Angie (Macuga) and I have visited a number of expert doctors and hospitals across the country to identify the best treatment options for me. I have chosen an aggressive approach that will include surgery and the overall prognosis is good. I’m looking forward to getting this behind me and continuing a very active lifestyle, my upcoming wedding, as well as continued active involvement in our businesses and philanthropic efforts for years to come.”

A spokeman for Blank said the owner would have no further comment.

Blank and Macuga, his fiancee, are engaged to be married in June.

Blank talked with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday in San Francisco before Super Bowl 50.

He was in good spirits while discussing the condition of the football team, the premum seat license situation for the new stadium and the hopes for landing the Super Bowl in 2019 or 2020.

Blank purchased the Atlanta Falcons in 2002. He almost bought the Atlanta Braves baseball team in 2007. He also has founded the Major League Soccer expansion franchise the Atlanta United FC, which is set to begin play in 2017.

The Falcons and Atlanta United are scheduled to begin playing in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2017.

The Falcons were estimated to be worth $1.67 billion by Forbes magazine in Sept. of 2015.

Blank’s ownership tenure has been colorful. The Falcons have reached two NFC championship games, finally posted back to back winning seasons in 2008 and 2009 and the team posted five straight winning seasons from 2008 to 2012.

Also, his ownership has been marred by some controversy. Early on he fired coach Dan Reeves, the only coach to lead the Falcons to a Super Bowl. There was also the federal dogfighting investigation into the activites of former quarterback Michael Vick, which led to a prison sentence and the team fortunates dipping.

Also, coach Bobby Petrino left the franchise after just 13 games in the middle of the 2007 season. He thought he was signing up to coach the talented Michael Vick.

Blank, who’s often seen on the sidelines during games, also fired Mike Smith, the winningest coach in franchise history after the 2014 season.

Cam Newton, in his first comments following his curt Super Bowl 50 post-game press conference, says he is in fact a "sore loser."

Newton, who gave short answers and was visibly uncomfortable during questioning Sunday night after the Carolina Panthers' 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, walked off the podium in response to a question that troubled him.

On Tuesday, he spoke from Charlotte where he added: "Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser."

>>Related: Did Cam Newton walk off interview because of Broncos player's comments? 

The NFL MVP went on to answer questions about his lackluster Super Bowl performance, his fourth quarter fumble and his decision to not speak to the media after the game, WSOC-TV reported

"I've said it since day one: I am who I am, I know what I'm capable of and I know where I'm going. I don't have to conform to anyone else's wants. I'm not that guy. If you want me to be this type of person I'm not that and I'm happy to say that. I am my own person and I take pride in that."

Newton went on to say, "Who are you to say that your way is right? I have all of these people who are condemning and saying this that and the third but what makes your way right?"

Newton's coach, Ron Rivera, said he wasn't bothered by his quarterback's show of emotion on or off the field Sunday.

“The one thing about Cam that I think a lot of people have to understand is he hates to lose. He really does. And a lot of great ones have that,” Rivera said on PFT Live. “Unfortunately, we just didn’t win the big one. I think he’ll learn and grow from this situation and come back stronger next year.”

Newton said Tuesday he was undeterred by the criticism.

"I've got no more tears to cry. I've obviously had a lot of time to think about it. I've seen so much blown out of proportion."At the end of the day, when you invest so much time and sacrifice so much and things don't go as planned, the emotions take over. That's what happens. As far as trying to be like this person, trying to be like that person ... the truth of the matter is I'm not trying to be like this person."

The last comment could be directed at former Falcon and NFL Network Deion Sanders, who chastised Newton, when he said no other NFL quarterback would behave in such a way.

"I'd much rather have a guy who hates to lose than a guy who accepts it," Rivera said.
