Talk about a turnaround. Quarterback Peyton Manning was 5-15 through his first 20 games as a starter for the Colts. Entering today, he is 50-40. That's a 45-25 run and 20-game swing. He joins Steve Young and Troy Aikman as the only quarterbacks to do that since 1970.
Cold weather means more running. Last week, there were 14 players who rushed for 100 yards or more, the most ever in one week.
What's Steelers coach Bill Cowher complaining about? The Seahawks are in Baltimore today and by the end of the season will have played road games in Green Bay, Washington, Cincinnati and Minneapolis. All told, the Seahawks will travel 31,976 air miles, most in the NFL regular season.
How is this possible? The Lions are 3-7, but that has nothing to do with turnovers and pass protection. Detroit has lost two fumbles and surrendered seven sacks, both NFL lows.
Three teams have more running than passing plays - the Ravens, Panthers and Cowboys. They lead their divisions. The Ravens have run 336 times (passed 287) and average 168.6 rushing yards. Next are the Panthers with 343 run plays (300 passes) and an average of 148.9 yards. The Cowboys have 341 runs to 325 passes and average 128.2 yards on the ground.
