WILL PEYTON’S PLACE BE HISTORY? WEEK 14 WIN HAS MANNING NEARING MIAMI HERALD SEASON RECORD
Denver’s Peyton Manning won Week 14 honors with 55.85 points — his fourth crown of the season and first since Week 5 — and is on pace to break the season record in the Miami Herald’s Passer Success System (PASS) NFL quarterback rankings. The record is 713.80 points, set by Drew Brees in 2011. Manning’s current pace projects to 716.45 points, not counting Thursday night’s game, which counts in next week’s chart. Dolphin Ryan Tannehill holds steady in 12th place. The Miami Herald rankings, in their 16th season, use a simple formula unchanged since its inception in 1998, factoring accuracy, yardage, TD/interception ratio and team result. These are passer rankings and do not weigh a QB’s running ability. Most rating systems including the NFL’s and ESPN’s are complicated and percentile based, allowing players who miss half a season to still win a title. Our rankings are cumulative, placing a premium on passers who are consistently productive and avoid injury or benching. Find our updated weekly 2013 rankings in this space every Sunday.
