Manning vs Luck
Through 1st 22 Career Starts
During his time there, Manning was named the AP NFL MVP a league-record four times, led the Colts to two Super Bowls (winning Super Bowl XLI) and started 208 consecutive games, the second longest streak by a quarterback in NFL history.
Luck has posted better stats in his first 22 career starts than Manning did, but he still has a long way to go to be as good as the current version of Manning.
Manning has been setting the league on fire so far this season. His 22 touchdown passes and 2,179 yards are the highest by any player through six games in league history.
Just check out the heat map below to see exactly where on the field Manning has been so effective this season (he’s above the league average in passing yards per attempt on throws 10 and 20 yards down the field).
Luck, on the other hand, has not been as effective as Manning. He’s below the league average in yards per attempt on throws short and to the middle of the field.
