Pro Bowl: 2008, 2011, 2012

TRANSACTIONS:
- Originally a 1st round (1st pick overall) draft choice by the San Diego Chargers in 2004. Obtained by the Giants in a trade for quarterback Philip Rivers (whom the Giants had taken with the 4th pick), the Giants’ 2004 3rd-round pick, and 2005 1st and 5th-round selections.

GIANTS NOTES:
- Followed his father, Archie, and brother, Peyton, into the NFL…Archie was the 2nd pick of the 1971 draft and played 14 years with New Orleans, Houston and Minnesota. Peyton was the 1st choice of the 1998 draft by the Indianapolis Colts, is a 5-time NFL Most Valuable Player and was the winning quarterback in Super Bowl XLI. Peyton Manning is in his 3rd season with the Denver Broncos, whom he led to Super Bowl XLVIII in MetLife Stadium in 2013.
- Manning’s arrival marked the 1st time the Giants came out of a draft with the top player selected since 1965, when they chose Auburn running back Tucker Fredrickson.
- Manning won the Rozelle Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI. He is 1 of 5 players in NFL history to win multiple Super Bowl MVP awards (Joe Montana, 3; Tom Brady, Terry Bradshaw and Bart Starr, 2 apiece).
- Manning is the only Giants player to win the Rozelle Trophy multiple times. Previous Giants Super Bowl MVPs include quarterback Phil Simms (Super Bowl XXI) and running back Ottis Anderson (Super Bowl XXV).
- Manning hit 9 different targets while completing 30 of 40 passes for 296 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions (a passer rating of 103.8) in the Giants’ 21-17 victory over New England in Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5, 2012. It was the 25th time in Super Bowl history a quarterback has won the MVP award (18 different quarterbacks; Baltimore’s Joe Flacco became the 19th in Super Bowl XLVII).
 - In Super Bowl XLII, Manning was named MVP after completing 19 of 34 passes for 255 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception that caromed off Steve Smith’s hands. It was the 2nd year in a row a Manning won the award; his brother received the honor after Super Bowl XLI the previous season.
- Manning is 1 of 31 different starting quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl and 1 of 2 Mannings. Peyton led the Indianapolis Colts to the title in 2006. The Mannings were the 18th set of brothers to play in the Super Bowl and the 1st pair of brothers to play quarterback.
- Manning is 1 of 21 quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl without losing 1.
- Manning is 1 of 11 quarterbacks to win at least 2 Super Bowls.
- Manning is 1 of 7 quarterbacks taken with the 1st overall selection in the NFL Draft to start a Super Bowl. The others are Terry Bradshaw (4-0 in Super Bowls), Jim Plunkett (2-0), John Elway (2-3), Troy Aikman (3-0), Drew Bledsoe (0-1), and Peyton Manning (1-1). The former No. 1 choices are 14-5 in Super Bowls.
- Manning and Brady were the starting quarterbacks in Super Bowl XLVI, as they were in Super Bowl II. It was the 3rd starting quarterback rematch in Super Bowl history and each resulted in a sweep. Terry Bradshaw and Pittsburgh defeated Roger Staubach and Dallas in Super Bowls X and XIII, and Troy Aikman and Dallas beat Jim Kelly and Buffalo in Super Bowls XXVII and XXVIII.
- Super Bowl XLVI was the 1st Super Bowl in which both starting quarterbacks had won a Super Bowl MVP award.
- Manning was the 1st quarterback to start 2 Super Bowls for the Giants. In their first 4 Super Bowls, 4 different quarterbacks started for the Giants. The others were Phil Simms, Jeff Hostetler and Kerry Collins. The Giants were the 1st team to start a different quarterback in each of their first 4 Super Bowls. Only 2 other teams have started 4 different quarterbacks in a Super Bowl, though not in the franchise’s first 4 games. The Raiders have started Daryle Lamonica, Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett and Rich Gannon. Washington’s four Super Bowl quarterbacks were Billy Kilmer, Joe Theismann, Doug Williams and Mark Rypien.
- Manning is the only quarterback to wear No. 10 and win a Super Bowl. The only other starting quarterback to wear No. 10 in a Super Bowl was Minnesota’s Fran Tarkenton in Super Bowls VIII, IX and XI.
- Manning has 5 game-winning, 4th-quarter drives in the playoffs. He is 1 of 4 quarterbacks since the 1970 merger to accomplish that feat, joining Tom Brady (7), John Elway (6) and Joe Montana (5).
 - In 2011, Manning set an NFL record with 15 fourth-quarter touchdown passes. The previous record of 14 was set by Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas in 1959 and tied by Peyton Manning (2002).

- Manning’s record as a starter is 85-66 (.563) in the regular season and 8-3 (.727) in the postseason. The 85 victories are the 2nd-most by a quarterback in Giants history; Simms won 95 games from 1979-93. Manning is 65-47 against the NFC and 20-19 vs. the AFC. He is 32-25 in NFC East games, 44-32 at home and 41-34 on the road.
- Manning’s record as a starter in October is 29-7, an .806 winning percentage that is the best of any quarterback with at least 20 starts in the Super Bowl era.
- Manning has started the Giants’ last 151 regular-season games, the longest streak among active quarterbacks and the 3rd-longest in NFL history. Only Brett Favre (297) and Peyton Manning (208) started more consecutive games than Manning. San Diego’s Philip Rivers, the player for whom Manning was traded during the 2004 NFL Draft, enters the 2014 season with the 2nd-longest streak among active quarterbacks with 128 consecutive starts.
- With the retirement of Washington linebacker London Fletcher, Manning’s consecutive 151 starts is the longest active streak by any player at any position entering the 2014 season.
 - Manning’s 151 consecutive starts is a record for Giants quarterbacks. The previous mark of 69 starts in a row was set by Fran Tarkenton from 1967-71.
- Since Manning made his first start on Nov. 21, 2004, 155 other quarterbacks have started an NFL regular-season game, including 25 different starters among the other three NFC East teams.
- Manning threw for at least 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in 8 consecutive seasons from 2005-2012, the 5th-longest such streak in NFL history. Peyton Manning holds the record with 13 seasons in a row.

- Manning is the 1st Giants quarterback to throw for more than 3,000 yards in 9 consecutive seasons, the 1st to have three 4,000-yard seasons (2009-11) and the 1st to throw at least 20 touchdown passes 8 years in a row.
- In 2013, Manning became the Giants’ career leader in pass attempts (5,008), passing yards (35,345) and interceptions (171). He is also the franchise record-holder in completions (2,929) and touchdown passes (229).
- Manning’s 57.5 completion percentage in 2013 lowered his career percentage to 58.49, which dropped him behind Kerry Collins (58.51) and into 2nd place on the Giants’ all-time list among quarterbacks with at least 1,000 attempts.
- Manning threw for more than 300 yards in 3 games in 2013. That increased his career regular-season total to 28 300-yard games, extending his franchise record. Simms is second with 21.
- Manning continues to rise on the NFL’s all-time passing lists. His 5,008 pass attempts leave him 21st in league history, just 16 behind Steve DeBerg. Manning’s 2,929 completions place him 18th, 40 behind Boomer Esiason. His 35,345 yards are the 19th-highest total in league history; Hall of Famer Jim Kelly is 18th with 35,467. Manning’s 229 touchdown passes leave him in 24th place, three behind Hall of Famer Steve Young.
- In 2013, Manning led the Giants to 2 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime. He has led 25 such regular-season game-winning drives in his career, the 5th-highest total among active quarterbacks. He trails Peyton Manning (50), Tom Brady (35), Drew Brees (31) and Ben Roethlisberger (29) and is immediately ahead of Carson Palmer (24).
- Manning was selected to play in his 3rd Pro Bowl and played in the game for the 2nd time in 2012. Originally a 2nd alternate, he was added to the NFC team when Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers was unable to play because of injuries. Manning completed 16 of 23 passes for 191 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception in the NFC’s 62-35 victory. He was selected but did not play in the 2011 Pro Bowl because the Giants were in the Super Bowl. When he played in his 1st Pro Bowl following the 2008 season Manning became the 1st Giants quarterback to be selected to the game since Simms in 1993.

On the next play, Manning did not move his legs as he threw the pass that was intercepted by Wilson. It was just the 2nd time in his career that Manning left a game early with an injury. On Sept., 9, 2007 in Dallas, Manning bruised his shoulder on a failed 2-point conversion in the 4th quarter.

- Manning led the Giants on an 11-play, 45-yard drive that ended with Josh Brown’s game-winning 45-yard field goal with 7:28 elapsed in overtime at Detroit (12/22).

- Manning completed 78.6 percent of his passes (22 of 28), while Robert Griffin III lagged slightly behind at a mere 75 percent (24 of 32) at Washington (12/1).
