Paths cross again for Woodson, Manning

Charles Woodson, and Peyton Manning, two of the most decorated and respected players in the NFL, meet on the field for only the fifth time Monday night at Sports Authority Field.

Click here to read about two players who competed for the Heisman Trophy in 1997 and then four months later sat in the same green room for the NFL draft.

Manning went No. 1 to the Colts, Woodson No. 4 to the Raiders. In between, the San Diego Chargers took Ryan Leaf and the Arizona Cardinals selected defensive end Andre Wadsworth of Florida State. Leaf was derailed by his own maturity and personality, while Wadsworth had bad knees and was out of the league in four years.

In terms of head-to-head meetings, Woodson was 2-1 against Manning with the Raiders and 1-0 with the Packers, all against the Colts.

Peyton Manning by the numbers
60,256 _ Passing yards, third all-time
445 _ Touchdown passes, second all-time
156 _ Regular-season wins, second all-time
37 _ TD passes in 2012, set Broncos record
12 _ Pro Bowl selections
4 _ Most Valuable Player awards
XLI _ Super Bowl champion, 2006 season

Charles Woodson by the numbers

896 _ Interception return yards, second among active players.
55 _ Interceptions, second among active players.
15 _ Consecutive seasons with an interception, fourth-all-time
13 _ Defensive touchdowns, second all-time
8 _ Pro Bowl selections
1 _ Defensive player of the Year award
XLV _ Super Bowl champion, 2010 season

    Tell us something we dont know.

    *****

    ok, how about 250 + yards rushing tonight for the Raiders.

    How bout saying Reece or Moore will have a big night.

  • LA to TheBay

    Are guys that are questionable usually play? Yeah, right?

    That usually goes 50-50, 60-40 in favor of them NOT playing from my estimation.

  • alex7

    DMac

    questionable = 50% chance of playing.
    Probable = 75% chance of playing.

    what we did on special teams years ago, with different coaches, players, and punters…matters zero to tonight.

    If you can take the ball away from a play-maker, do so. You get ZERO points for bravery/bad strategy.

    Again, no different than putting 8 in the box vs Peterson.

    Wrong agian. I hope the Raiders play with a pair tonight.

    ==========

    Brains > A pair. Better yet, have a pair and play with your brains. Stupid teams don’t win in this league. Holliday is a weapon…a deadly one. He can score on perfect coverage. If we lose, I want Peyton to beat us, not Holliday. Just my opinion.

  • DMAC

    I have trust in our Special Teams unit.

    + we have Taiwan-da gunna!!!!!

  • LA to TheBay

    Anybody see the ESPN MNF promo?

    You would think it was just Peyton playing catch with himself.

    We’re getting a bit of love out there but nobody but some crazies in here, including myself, think we have a realistic shot at a W.

    I don’t get DA’s praise. Throughout preseason and two weeks, I always see Jones being the first guy there but has yet to even touch the ball carrer.

  • DMAC

    Gotta think Egg Head is goin to go after the rookie Hayden.
    Bring your A game fellas!

  • LA to TheBay

    I guess if he can get there fast enough to force a fair catch, he’s doing his job.

  • DMAC

    yes sir

    I believe we can win if we start well, that will be the key. Start well, survive that first wave of emotion, and settle in.

    Never understood why a lot of folks in The Nation WANT the recognition. I like being under the radar.

    Of course, with a ton of wins will come more attention, more expectation.

    I’ll prefer to be a huge underdog at least for tonight.
