Saints News, 12/31/13: Can Drew Brees Get The Passing Record Back From Peyton Manning?

Justin Edmonds

Manning broke Brees' 5,476 passing yards in a season record by one yard on Sunday, but several national web sites are now suggesting that a play where Manning got credit for a 7-yard pass, was instead a lateral. If the NFL rules it was a lateral, Brees would get the record back.

Ron Jaworski disagrees with Cris Collinsworth's assessment of Nick Foles, talks Drew Brees
Last Sunday night in Dallas, NBC color analyst Cris Collinsworth continuously railed on Nick Foles for not keeping his eyes down the field at the first hint of pressure. His analysis was contrary to Foles' reputation as a QB who will continue to look down the field for open receivers despite a heavy oncoming rush. It's one of the reasons Andy Reid's regime drafted him, and one of the reasons he has had so much success this season.
