Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and the Most Completions in NFL Postseason History
Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, the top two most prolific postseason passers of all time, will meet in the playoffs for a fourth time this Sunday in the 2013 AFC Championship. Take a look at their head-to-head postseason record and stats here, and an overall playoff stats comparison here.
In the meantime, today’s post – the top 20 quarterbacks with the most completions in the postseason.
You’d think active quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger or Eli Manning would be lining up for membership to these clubs, but they are WAY off. They might get to 400 (of course depending on how good their teams are), but 500 seems out of the question.
We’ll have to wait some time for the next generation or two of great passing quarterbacks to develop before seeing anyone within striking distance of the top. Perhaps a long time.Follow @VinGetz
