Can Manning Be Stopped?

Eagles Broncos Football

No doubt the most dominant quarterback in the NFL, Payton Manning understands the game better than anyone. I think there is one question that every NFL fan is asking, how the %#&^$ do you stop him!?!? Well, to be honest I don’t have the answer. But I can try to give you an idea.

The best way I think is to try to beat the Broncos, don’t try to beat Payton. Face the fact that you will not beat their offence. They average 358.5  passing yards a game, that is first in the NFL. Their only lose came against the Colts and even then they scored 33 points and Manning still had 386 yards. So that’s not how you win, don’t try to shut down their defense.

Go after their pass defense.  They average 299.1 opponent passing yards, only 30th in the NFL. Andrew Luck was able to throw all over their weak secondary and had 228 yards and 3 touchdowns. Those aren’t MVP stats but they aren’t chump change either.

So moral of the story, you can’t beat Payton Manning. He knows and understands defensive schemes better then most offensive and defensive coordinators.
