manning usually does, and is on pace for like 5800 passing yards right now. Brees has to pass because at any moment their d could let up several tds in a row, a 25 point lead isn't much for the Saints with an entire quarter to go. They tried running the ball but none of the backs can run and lose yardage or get to the los if lucky. Manning was up 35 13 last week, then throws a td to Welker with 22 seconds in the 3rd, puts them up 42, then a blocked punt puts them up 49 to 13, thats when they pulled him. After this game, they will still have a similar number of attempts, completions, Manning has edge in yards, edge in receivers as well though. Brees is throwing fade routes to a 5'5 rb.
