National Football League fans got a great day of football on Sunday, December 15, with exciting games, great individual performances, and some unbelievable finishes. Here’s a few stats you may not know from a few of the games this past weekend.
1. New York Giants QB Eli Manning threw five interceptions in his team’s 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It was Eli’s first five-interception game in the NFL. It was also the second five-interception game in the league this season (Baltimore’s Joe Flacco was picked off five times versus Buffalo earlier this year). Since 1960, George Blanda has the most five-interception games with 10. Teams that have a QB throw five interceptions in a game are 15-181-4 since 1960. Eli’s brother, Peyton, has one five-interception game in his career. What you might not know is their dad, Archie, had a pair of five-interception games in his career.
