[October 1, 2013]
Peyton Manning is aiming to shoot for the stars with a historical run for a perfect season in the NFL. So far, he is on track.
Through 4 games so far, he has led his team to 4 straight victories and 0 losses. He has thrown 16 touchdowns,
an inspiring 75% completion rate for passes.
, he has had 0 interceptions (for those new to football, interceptions describe the unwanted outcome of an opponent taking possession of the ball midway).
, all these eye-popping statistics will amount to little if Manning does not complete this season with a Super Bowl win.
, the yardstick that Manning uses to measure himself is whether he can lead his team once again to Super Bowl victory and glory.
