Scary number of the day (for the rest of the NFL): Denver’s dropped passes

32 Observations, Week 3

Peyton Manning has had 13 of his 122 passes dropped which is the highest amount in the league. That is 10.7% of his passes which is also the highest rate. The league average is 6.1%

PFF has charged those 13 drops thusly: Eric Decker (5), Wes Welker (3), Demaryius Thomas (2), Knowshon Moreno, Julius Thomas, and Virgil Green (1 each). There were three drops against Baltimore, six versus the Giants, and four on Monday.

There's going to be a day when there are no drops, and if that coincides with a sharp day from Manning, look out. BTW, Jacksonville comes to town in Week 6...
