Manning and Brady Are Nearly Tied in Lifetime Passer Rating

Since I like to cover statistical anomalies on Wall Street and other places, I thought I’d share a fun one: Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are nearly tied in the NFL’s (mostly useless) Passer Rating.

I won’t even try to settle the argument of who is better, but the Manning camp could always say that their guy had the better passing rating. This was true for most of the past few years.

But thanks to throwing 11 interceptions in the last three weeks, Manning’s Passer Rating has dropped to 94.7567. Tom Brady’s is 94.6978. They’re now separated by less than 0.06 points. Just seven weeks ago, Manning was leading by over two full points. Four years ago, he was leading by more than six points.
