Manning hooked with Brandon Myers for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He was intercepted by Donald Butler in the first quarter and by Shareece Wright in the final quarter. He completed 20 of 32 passes for 259 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 37-14 defeat.
Manning has been intercepted 20 times and has five games with at least two interceptions this season. He'll look to get back on track in Week 15 against the Seattle. The Seahawks allowed only 175 passing yards to Colin Kaepernick in Week 14.
Manning's last six games have been against teams that have allowed 20 or more Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. They've included the defenses that have allowed the most, second-most, sixth-most, eighth-most, 10th-most, and 11th-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks. There are very few schedule combinations that would have yielded a better set of curcumstances. And yet here Manning stands, with just one 20-point game all season (Week 1), and having scored more than 15 Fantasy points just once in that dreamy six-game span of great matchups.
Manning has shown a ton of ability in the past, which is why so many owners have been salivating over these matchups, convinced that this will be the week he breaks out. Instead, Manning has five games this season with single-digit Fantasy point outputs, and a Week 14 matchup that would scream for a start, if this were any other quarterback.
There's bad luck involved here, some poor wide receiver play and injury, and then just a chunk of the unknown. An eternal Manning optimist may feel like the Chargers are a good matchup and this may be the week!, but there's a large enough sample size and enough data to keep him on the bench going forward.
Late in the first half, Manning found tight end Brandon Myers wide open for a 22-yard score off play action. But in the third quarter, Manning was pressured and threw high for receiver Rueben Randle. The ball was tipped and picked off easily by Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather. It was Manning's NFC-leading 18th interception.
Manning has another plus matchup Week 14 at San Diego.
Manning has faced some easy opponents of late based on Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks -- Philadelphia twice, Minnesota, Green Bay, Dallas and Oakland -- but his best game was 19 points against the Cowboys in Week 12. He only has one game this season with more than 20 points, which was Week 1 at Dallas.
The Redskins come into this matchup having allowed four of their past six opposing quarterbacks to score at least 20 Fantasy points, including Nick Foles and Colin Kaepernick the past two games. We'll see if Manning can make it three in a row.
Manning also has a terrible history against the Redskins. In his past five meetings, Washington has held Manning to an average of 277 passing yards with four total touchdowns and seven interceptions over that span. He should be considered just a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in this matchup.
