In fact, aside from winning Super Bowl XLII and XLVI, Manning has been pretty average throughout his career. He has a career completion percentage of 59.0 has thrown 259 touchdowns against 185 interceptions, and holds a regular season record of 91-76.

Eli currently holds the third-longest NFL quarterback consecutive start streak of all-time with 178 straight games, regular season and playoffs combined. He is the active leader ahead of Phillip Rivers.
