Tom Brady's Career versus Peyton Manning, Part A and Part B

By John Turney

Two weeks ago we looked at Tom Brady's career  (LINK)  in relation to passing  productivity from 2001-2006 and then 2007-2015.  We found that the numbers from 2007 to present were significantly better and published this chart:
It showed Brady to have a passer rating of 88.4 earlier in his career and more recently a rating of 101.6, and a similar trend in the playoffs

With the 17th iteration of Brady-Manning coming up in the AFC Championship Game this weekend we looked at Brady's numbers versus Manning's teams to see if there was a similar trend.

Is there? You decide. There seems to be a 'Part A" and "Part B" here as well. Something happened in 2007.
McDaniel? Moss, then Gronkowski? Gisele B√ľndchen? The two begin dating in December 2006. Frankly, we are not sure of the reasons, only that there is a line of demarcation beginning in the 2007 season.

Overall in the 16 games of the head-to-head matchup the Patriots have averaged 30 points per game and Manning's teams 25 ppg. Brady's teams are 11-5.

Manning has completed 410/ 657 passes (62.4%) for 4,809 yards, 33 TDs and 22 INTs for a passer rating of 87.4 and Brady has completed 367/553 passes (66.4%) for 4,013 yards, 31 TDs and 13 INTs for a 96.5 rating.
