Payton Mannings one awkward afternoon story. The five worst QB performances of all time (ranked via fantasy football points) belong to: Ryan Leaf, Nathan Peterman, John Skelton, Sam Darnold and Peyton Manning.

Peyton Manning?

That's right - Peyton Manning, who is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, also owns one of the very worst single-game performances of all time.


The date was November 15th, 2015.

Manning, still considered one of the best quarterbacks in the league, was looking forward to feasting against the inept Kansas City Chiefs defense.

The 7-1 Broncos were at home, while the 3-5 Kansas City Chiefs were on the road.

Doesn't seem like a recipe for Manning to post one of the worst games for a QB of all time, does it?


Peyton Manning was TERRIBLE from the moment he stepped into the game until the time he was mercifully yanked for Brock Osweiler.

Manning's stat line was atrocious:

35 Yards Passing
0 Touchdowns
4 Interceptions

Manning was sacked twice and fumbled once (though it was recovered by the Broncos).

Manning posted a QBR of 0.3 for the game, which was very nearly the infamous "perfect" 0.0 QBR.


Manning's very bad game resulted in a fantasy football score of -6.6 points, which surely lost many, many fantasy football contests that week.
