Brady, Belichick, Peyton can set NFL playoff records

New England Patriots head coach Belichick embraces quarterback Brady after they defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL AFC Championship football game in Foxborough Reuters

If this weekend’s games go as expected, the AFC’s Super Bowl team will be quarterbacked by either Peyton Manning or Tom Brady for the eighth time in the last 12 years. So it’s no surprise that in addition to trying to get back to the Super Bowl with their teams, Manning and Brady are both closing in on some all-time NFL playoff records.

It’s also no surprise that the coach who has been to five Super Bowls with Brady, Bill Belichick, is closing in on some playoff records of his own. Here’s a look at the records that Manning, Brady and Belichick have a chance at tying or breaking in the coming weeks:

Most career postseason wins by a coach: Belichick is 17-7 in the postseason in his career, tying him with Joe Gibbs for the third-most playoff wins ever. Only Tom Landry (20) and Don Shula (19) have more, and Belichick will tie Landry for first all time if the Patriots win the Super Bowl. If the Patriots reach the Super Bowl Belichick will also tie Shula’s record for most Super Bowl appearances as a head coach (six) and if the Patriots win the Super Bowl Belichick will tie Chuck Noll for the most Super Bowl wins by a head coach (four). Saturday will be Belichick’s 25th postseason game as a head coach; only Landry and Shula (36 each) have more.

Most career postseason wins by a starting quarterback: The Patriots are 16-6 with Brady as their starter in the playoffs, tying Brady with Joe Montana for the most wins ever by a starting quarterback in the postseason. If the Patriots beat the Texans on Saturday, Brady will be all alone in first place with his 17th playoff win.

Most career postseason touchdown passes: Brady has 38 touchdown passes in the playoffs, third all-time behind Montana (45) and Brett Favre (44). Brady needs eight touchdown passes in the playoffs (which won’t be easy, but is possible if the Patriots make it to the Super Bowl) to pass Montana.

Most career postseason attempts and completions: Brady already owns both of these records (499 completions in 793 attempts), but it’s noteworthy that he’ll pad those records on Saturday while becoming the first player in NFL history to throw 800 playoff passes and complete 500 playoff passes.

Most career postseason passing yards: Manning is third all-time, with 5,389 career postseason passing yards. With a big game on Sunday he could pass Joe Montana (5,772) for second place, and with two or three postseason games he could move past Brett Favre (5,855) for first place all time.

And here are some noteworthy postseason records involving other players in this year’s postseason:

Highest career postseason passer rating: Aaron Rodgers owned this record heading into these playoffs, and he still does after the Packers’ win over the Vikings. Rodgers’ career postseason passer rating is 105.4, which tops the longstanding record that was previously held by another Packers quarterback, Bart Starr, who had a passer rating of 104.8 in his 10 career postseason games.

Most career postseason field goals and field goal attempts: Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri owned both of these records even before he went 3-for-4 on Sunday. Vinatieri now has made 48 playoff field goals in 58 attempts. David Akers is second place in both categories with 35 field goals in 42 attempts. Akers might (or might not) get a chance to narrow the gap with Vinatieri against the Packers.

Most career postseason catches: Jerry Rice owns this record, with 151 career playoff catches, and that record won’t be broken any time soon, if ever. But Reggie Wayne moved into second place all time on Sunday, when he caught nine passes to get to 92 in his career.

Most career postseason touchdown catches: Jerry Rice owns this record, with 22 career playoff touchdowns, and that record won’t be broken any time soon, if ever. But Randy Moss is currently tied for third place, with 10 playoff touchdowns, and he could move into second place if he scores three touchdowns in this postseason. Steelers Hall of Famer John Stallworth is currently No. 2, with 12 career playoff touchdowns.

Most career postseason interceptions: Ravens safety Ed Reed has eight playoff picks, one shy of the NFL record shared by Charlie Waters, Bill Simpson and Ronnie Lott. With one more interception Reed will tie the record, and with two he’ll have the record all to himself. Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel has seven career playoff interceptions, so with one pick he’ll tie Reed, with two picks he’ll tie the all-time record, and with three picks he’ll break it.

Most career postseason interception return yards: I bet you didn’t know that Asante Samuel already owns this record, with 227 yards gained on his seven interceptions. Amaze your friends while watching the Falcons on Sunday with this moderately interesting fact.

Most career postseason interception return touchdowns: Seriously, do people realize how good Asante Samuel has been in the playoffs? He owns this record, too, with four. The only other player with more than two pick-sixes in NFL postseason history is former Raider Willie Brown, who had three interception return touchdowns, one of which was immortalized in one of the greatest NFL Films clips ever.

    Also, with another loss Manning would become the all-time postseason losses leader by a QB. He is currently 9-10.

  2. phrancheyez says: Jan 10, 2013 12:29 PM

    So where, throughout the whole article, is any record where Peyton Manning is close to breaking it, as you said in the title? He isn’t listed in this article as close to breaking a record even one single time. Fail?

    Michael David Smith: The fail is your reading comprehension. Manning is more than 90 percent of the way to the all-time postseason passing yards record, and will likely break it in the AFC Championship Game.

  3. gweetarman says: Jan 10, 2013 12:29 PM

    By the end of the Super Bowl, the records will look like this:

    Peyton Manning: 12-10

    Tom Brady: 17-7

    Do the math. :)

  4. natelan69 says: Jan 10, 2013 12:29 PM

    Don’t forget about my Chargers, as they set multiple records this year;

    Most overrated team of all time.

    Most over-hyped team to not make the playoffs.

    Most embarrassing franchise of all time.

    most super bowl loses since being caught cheating

  7. azarkhan says: Jan 10, 2013 12:36 PM

    You can make the case that Joe Gibbs is arguably the greatest coach of all time because he won three Super Bowls with three different QBs.

  8. bullcharger says: Jan 10, 2013 12:37 PM

    One more… Manning can tie Brett Favre for most career playoff losses (11) with a loss this year.

  9. raylewisandhisteeth says: Jan 10, 2013 12:37 PM

    Can’t wait to watch Manning shred that Ravens “defense”…again! HAH!

  10. shenanigans24 says: Jan 10, 2013 12:39 PM

    So, basically what you meant when you said Brady and Manning are closing in on some all time playoff records is that Brady is closing in on playoff records. Oh wait, there it is – yards. Even though Brady has only 100 less you did manage to find a spot to mention Manning. Manning can however tie the record for most playoff losses ever with Favre.

  11. bigdaddydooko says: Jan 10, 2013 12:40 PM

    And who does Asante Samuel have to thank for all those interceptions? Peyton Manning.

    Both Noll and Belichick still trail Vince Lombardi for NFL titles won (five). Brady and Manning also trail Bart Starr for all-time post-season winning percentage. Starr finished 9-1, losing only the 1960 NFL title game.

  15. marima07 says: Jan 10, 2013 12:43 PM

    Asante Samuel has 7 career post-season interceptions.

    Patriots fans all know he should have had 8.

    Brady>Manning

  17. reed20fence says: Jan 10, 2013 12:49 PM

    I was thinking about this statistic this morning. It’s telling.

    Peyton Manning joined the league in 1998. He played all but one season for Indy since then. That’s that’s 16 seasons minus 2 for last year and this year with the Broncs. So 14 years with the Broncs. Someone correct the numbers cuz I know the divisional re-alignments changed several years after he started, but ostensibly, that’s 8 games a regular season year in his own dome, and 3 games a year in temperate Houston, Tenessee, and Jacksonville. 11 out of 16 games in passer-favorable conditions, including a host of others against southern, or domed teams. But let’s stick with those 11. 11 games times 14 regular seasons equals 154 games out of a potenial 224 overall. That’s 68.75% or almost 70.

    If you buy into the argument, and add in the recent figures that have been circulating about his suspect record in the playoffs when the temperatures are more frigid, you gain a much higher appreciation of what Brady has accomplished.

    To me, Brady is considerably better.

  18. tedmurph says: Jan 10, 2013 12:49 PM

    Brady is only 104 yds behind Manning in postseason passing yds. He’s also a year and a half younger, healthier and liable to play longer.
    Also, since Brady is 16-6 in the playoffs and Manning is 9-10, Brady is liable to play in more playoff games.

  19. bullcharger says: Jan 10, 2013 12:52 PM

    Both Noll and Belichick still trail Vince Lombardi for NFL titles won (five). Brady and Manning also trail Bart Starr for all-time post-season winning percentage. Starr finished 9-1, losing only the 1960 NFL title game.

    ————————

    Brady was 10-0 in the playoffs. If he had retired at the end of that season he would still be 10-1. The number of wins matter much more than percentage, because unless you get a Super Bowl you get a loss every year. That shows that you are in the playoffs each year, which means something. Guys that are 1-0 are have a better winning percentage than Starr, but we all know that is meaningless. Well so is Starr’s 10 starts to Brady’s 22.

  20. tebowpraystobrady says: Jan 10, 2013 12:52 PM

    The Asante Samuels stats make me want to puke…he’s more known for the gift INT he dropped to seal the perfect season. Luckily the Falcons will be 1 and done and we won’t have to worry about him breaking anymore records.

    Super Bowl Prediction

    Pats 71
    Packers 2

    Packers get their 2 points on safety after Brady does the Ray Lewis Squirrel Dance in the end zone and is ruled to have been down.

  21. all4patriots says: Jan 10, 2013 12:53 PM

    Brady’s run at the all-time wins mark is the most impressive, since winning is what matters most, Montana’s status as a clutch postseason performer, and also the fact that Brady would have more wins (17 vs. 16) with also one fewer loss (6 vs. 7)

  22. overweightman says: Jan 10, 2013 12:54 PM

    Funny, the 49ers are involved in almost the playoff records in one way or another.

  23. hrmlss says: Jan 10, 2013 12:55 PM

    What about most play-off win’s due to a stupid rule?

  24. fatediesel says: Jan 10, 2013 12:57 PM

    People probably forget how good Asante Samuel has been because whenever they think of him they remember him dropping an easy game-clinching interception against the Giants in 2008.

  25. it's all bs says: Jan 10, 2013 12:58 PM

    And after Saturday Joe Flacco can add yet ANOTHER post season loss to his repertoire.

  26. Beezo-Doo-doo-Zippity-Bop-bop-bop says: Jan 10, 2013 1:08 PM

    Brady’s records all come with the huge asterisk that due to cheating he had the unfair advantage of knowing the defensive play call approximately 60% of the time. Everybody knows it, some can’t admit it.

  27. bradwins says: Jan 10, 2013 1:08 PM

    Asante Samuel dropped the only postseason interception that mattered (though I concede that interceptions are difficult when attempted with one’s face). To hell with those records.

  28. brazzz01 says: Jan 10, 2013 1:09 PM

    A loss to the Ravens and Manning will add to his NFL record of seven one-and-dones.

  29. skoodsports says: Jan 10, 2013 1:10 PM

    The Patriots’ record setting offense scored just 14 points. Blame Brady and Belichick not Asante Samuel.

    I buy into the argument that Brady fumbled against the Raiders and should have lost and I also buy into the fact that the Patriot’s were caught cheating during those years.

    to me, Manning is considerably better

  31. tedmurph says: Jan 10, 2013 1:11 PM

    Can’t fault Starr for lack of playoff appearances. Before the SB era(during the bulk of Starr’s career), the NFL just played 1 Championship game between the two divisions for the title. Still, even in different eras, it’s hard to argue Starr was anywhere near the QB Brady and Manning are. GB didn’t win on their passing game.

    Damn straight. That was unforgivable. Any time he plays Eli he gets a pick, but he can never make up for that miss.

  33. eventhorizon04 says: Jan 10, 2013 1:19 PM

    I love all the Patriots fans here who started following the team in the mid-2000′s.

    Tom Brady is terrific quarterback. However, believe it or not, the Patriots’ defense was better than its offense for most of the early 2000′s back when they won their 3 Super Bowls.

    That’s notable for 2 reasons:
    1. Brady is a better QB now that he was in the early 2000′s, and the defense is worse nowadays than it was in the early 2000′s.
    2. Coincidentally, the Patriots have been far less successful in the post-season since 2007 as the Patriots defense has been rebuilt without guys like Vrabel, Bruschi, Samuels, Harrison, etc. 0 Super Bowl wins, 2 “one-and-dones” including a loss to the Mark Sanchez-led Jets 2 years ago.

    That’s because “wins” aren’t a QB stat. They’re a team stat. Everybody who has played football before understands that QBs aren’t the only players you need to win games.

  34. eventhorizon04 says: Jan 10, 2013 1:20 PM

    Put another way, if “playoff wins” are a measure of a QB’s ability, then Tim Tebow > Matt Ryan as a QB.

    You tell me if that makes any sense.

  35. golonger says: Jan 10, 2013 1:24 PM

    Joe Flacco has a better post-season % than Manning does!!!!!

  36. brazzz01 says: Jan 10, 2013 1:24 PM

    I buy into the argument that Jon Gruden pulled the lever and sent the Raiders circling the bowl and down with the rest of the turds and they haven’t been seen since.

    to me, the Raiders just suck

  37. objectivenflfan says: Jan 10, 2013 1:26 PM

    All this talk about Manning’s record in the playoffs. Who cares?! It’s a new year, new season, new team. And for those calling the game Saturday between the Ravens/Broncos an “upset” special, I’d have to disagree.

    If the Ravens come into Denver and put 30+ points on Denver, then yes, there’s a chance, but they haven’t done it all year long. The Ravens haven’t scored 30 points in 1 away game this year. In 8 games on the road, Flacco has thrown for 200+ yards on 2 times.

    The Broncos have scored 30+ points in 13/16 games this year, 8 of those times coming at home. I get the hate for Peyton, he has a mega forehead, I mean of course that’s a reason to hate on someone (or the fact he didn’t go to your team).

    Sorry, it’s been a nice story Ray Lewis, but you and Ravens fans will be watching the Broncos play in the AFC Championship.

  38. golonger says: Jan 10, 2013 1:28 PM

    Manning can add to his record for the most chokes in post-season with a loss on Saturday!!!

    Devin McCourty returning a kickoff to the house after the Packers make it close. For some reason Coach McCarthy keeps kicking to McCourty and then they pay for it. And then McCarthy bolts to the Vikings right after the game.

  40. lightcleric says: Jan 10, 2013 1:34 PM

    I know the Super Bowl isn’t exactly the playoff(it’s still the postseason), but what I’ve always found baffling is that even in this day and age of passing,no one but Kurt Warner has thrown for 400 yards in a Super Bowl, and that was 13 years ago. In fact, he owns the 3 highest passing yard games in the Super Bowl.

  41. golonger says: Jan 10, 2013 1:35 PM

    Nobody ever said playoff wins was the measure of a QBs ability…but it is a measure of greatness!

  42. brazzz01 says: Jan 10, 2013 1:42 PM

    That’s because “wins” aren’t a QB stat. They’re a team stat. Everybody who has played football before understands that QBs aren’t the only players you need to win games.

    Except if you’re Tom Brady, then according to Pats haters, wins are a “team stat” but losses are all Brady’s fault.

    Of course to be fair, same is applicable for Manning and Manning haters….

    objectivenflfans: Sorry, Denver is the most overrated team in the league in the worst division in the league which is why they did so well in the regular season. This is the playoffs and Manning’s weak arm will be exposed for what it truly is!

  44. tedmurph says: Jan 10, 2013 1:48 PM

    Asante Samuel was feast or famine. You make Pro Bowls and get notoriety with interceptions. Problem with Samuel is he’d take chances on picks and get burned for big plays. He’s also invisible against the run. I doubt the Eagles, in hindsight, would say his contract was a great investment. Seems to have worked out for the Falcons though. Pats problem is they’ve wiffed too many times in the draft and free agency trying to replace him.

  45. golonger says: Jan 10, 2013 1:48 PM

    One win/ring can be a fluke. Trent Dilfer has a ring but that doesn’t mean he’s great and certainly doesn’t mean he’s better than Dan Marino who has none.

    But when you have lots of wins/rings then that’s not a fluke at all. IMO.

    You know…about the Ravens…I feel like after they smashed the Giants that was the moment they turned their season around. We saw the Giants have “that moment” in recent years and we know how that ended up.

    I wouldn’t bet money on the Ravens winning in Denver but an upset wouldn’t be as shocking to me as to most people….

  48. tedmurph says: Jan 10, 2013 1:58 PM

    @eventhorizon04:

    All true, except the big thing you left out is the intangibles. The clutch plays, the leadership, the ability to come through when it counts. Guys like Brady, Elway Montana have it. Some guys don’t. Brady’s game winning drive against the Rams, for example, when Madden said to sit on the ball and play for OT and the D was leaking oil.

    I will get frowned upon for saying this but as good as Bellick and Brady are, they’ve largely needed each other to have the success they’ve had.

    If either one had been on separate teams for their career, I dont believe either would have achieved what they have in the past decade. Unfortunately, we will never see it proven for Brady, as he will never be on another team. Perhaps we’ll see how Bellick does without Brady, though keep in mind, they went 11-5 without Brady one year, with an average QB who never started before.

  55. bubba99m says: Jan 10, 2013 2:14 PM

    HELLO! Ravens do not need to put up 30 points to beat the Broncos. Broncos need to put up 20 to beat the Ravens. Too many bold and optimistic predictions by Bronco fans. The reality is that Denver has only played five games this year against teams with a winning record and lost three of those. Could have been four. This game should be very interesting. I’m not a fan of either team but will be watching this one for sure. Either way, fans win!

  56. golonger says: Jan 10, 2013 2:15 PM

    Also, I love how everyone was saying how bad the Colts were going to be this year with no talent and no Manning..well look…they played great and made the playoffs…and Denver made the playoffs last year without a QB (essentially). If the Broncos lose Sat, they will have gone no further than they did with Tebow!

    “If this weekend’s games go as expected, the AFC’s Super Bowl team will be quarterbacked by either Peyton Manning or Tom Brady for the eighth time in the last 12 years.”

    =================

    Eli/Big Ben 5 times in 7 years is more impressive – especially coming from the same draft class. And especially since neither of them has a coach who has had to pay a half-million in cheating fines covering 3 of those 8 appearances.

  60. bubba99m says: Jan 10, 2013 2:22 PM

    Hey Brazzz, How about Patriots in 2008. Record was 11-5 without Brady and also fielding a team with more holes than Swiss cheeze.

    ————
    …because they couldn’t beat any good teams after going 16-0 the year before. 1-4 against the AFC playoff field, 3 of those losses were blowouts, 2 of those blowout losses were at home… that speaks for itself. The result of the downgrade in QB couldn’t be more obvious.

    Still, 11-5 is pretty good and with the reins on Cassel they did have some success… and he did make the pro bowl once so he wasn’t exactly a scrub.

    Oh please. 9 times out of 10, 11 and 5 gets you in the playoffs. Matt Castle is an average QB at best and managed to get 11 wins.

    Bellichick most likely will have continued success after Brady should he chose to keep coaching at that point.

    And I dont think anyone should bring up the Browns. Horrible organization and I dont fault anyone for not having great success there.

    Speaking of cheating, what have the Steelers done other than get their grills caved in by Tebow and miss the playoffs the year after that, since Dr Rydze and his HGH left the team?

    Probably the same answer for why the whole Steeler roster is riddled with injuries all the time and why James Harrison’s performance has fallen off the cliff…

    I buy into the argument that Brady fumbled against the Raiders and should have lost and I also buy into the fact that the Patriot’s were caught cheating during those years.

    to me, Manning is considerably better

    I buy into the argument that Jon Gruden pulled the lever and sent the Raiders circling the bowl and down with the rest of the turds and they haven’t been seen since.

    to me, the Raiders just suck

    Obviously another uneducated patriot’s fan who probably started rooting for them in 2002. Gruden had nothing to do with their demise that would be Al Davis, but than again a front runner like yourself wouldn’t know that.

    to me, try winning without cheating, since they haven’t done it yet. Instead they are the biggest choke in Super Bowl history 18-1…ahahahaha!!

    Patriots fans all know he should have had 8.

    _______________________________
    NFL fans know Brady and Bellicheck should have one more loss and one less win from the tuck rule game.

    ————————————————

    Couldn’t agree with you more, but it would be 2 less wins since after that game they cheated and won in the AFC Championship game and the Super Bowl.

    And NFL fans know they probably would have ZERO Super Bowls if not for cheating. Only ignorant front running patriot fans won’t admit it

    We already did.

    Cleveland, and NE in 2000. I’d say it didn’t go so well.


    Conveniently you left out the fact the the last time the Browns won a playoff game the head coach was BB.

    And every time someone tries to kill BB using Cleveland as there “hey how did he do in Cleveland argument” never mention the part about the franchise being a total disaster do to the ownership wanting to move the team.

    And then NE in 2000. You left out the part about the salary cap issues the team was in because of the previous coach and GM.

  70. brazzz01 says: Jan 10, 2013 2:34 PM

    Hey Brazzz, How about Patriots in 2008. Record was 11-5 without Brady and also fielding a team with more holes than Swiss cheeze.

    ————
    Like I said, the Pats went from 16-0 with a very tough schedule in 2007… to 11-5 (and unable to beat good teams) with a very easy schedule. 1-4 against the AFC playoff field. 3 blowout losses. 2 at home. The results are undeniable.

    The downgrade at QB had an obvious effect, that is stone cold fact that beyond any dispute.

    I will agree that what happened to the Colts last year would not happen to a Belichick team, the Patriots are much better coached and better prepared to handle a bad situation than last year’s Colts were.

    Give me a break. They’ve been winning every year. 2 Super Bowl appearances and 3 byes in a row now. Only the Steelers have done better in the AFC. The Raiders would trade records in a heartbeat.

    Wayne’s stats are amazing considering according to something I saw right before Indy played the Ravens last week, he had gone three playoff games without any catches. He’s been so phenomenal his whole career, but this year may have been his best year yet not only for how he played but also for what he meant to the team and his young QB. As a Pats fan, I gained even more respect for him when he turned down an offer to play for my team to stay in Indy. That type of thing does not happen much anymore.

    @ bucslose, I agree with you on BB/TB. I get sick of the huge amount of black and white viewpoints of “one is nothing without the other” etc. They make each other better…period.

    Please. Incomplete pass like it was and it would have been 4th and almost 20. Instead thanks to Dreith’s bogus call it was first down at the 1. I don’t think I need to explain the difference. Put a big fat asterisk next to the Raiders title in 76. They didn’t really beat the Pats. Ben Dreith did.

    Funny you use the “all they had to do was stop them line…” after the Tuck Rule was correctly applied on the play the Raiders were still winning that game. So why didn’t they stop them?

    It wasn’t a bad call. It was the right call by the rulebook. A technicality, yes, but still the right call.

    Attention dwindling spygate crowd:

    No matter how much you hold your breath and stomp your feet, the national media has moved on from this story. NFL Network and ESPN still play all of the Patriots Super Bowl highlights in all of their glory. I still see Brady holding his hands on his head and Vinatieri’s kicks going through the uprights in sweet, beautiful slow motion.

    After New England has continued their tremendous winning ways, and have been in 2 more Super Bowls since with a completely different team, the media has let it go because they realize the story obviously didn’t mean much.

    So cry all you want ladies. But those NFL Films highlights look as pretty as ever and there’s nothing your insignificant little hands can type to change that.

    people say this all the time. but dude they went 18-1 the previous year so a 7 game drop off is definitely not as good as what brady did with that team. they could have went back to the super bowl had Brady not gone down.
