Red-faced and bundled on the sideline in a parka and stocking cap, Peyton Manning looked nothing the part of the cold-weather quarterback.

From a numbers perspective, he isn't.

His 19-for-36, 150-yard performance in a 6-degree wind chill at New England showed it, as does his unflattering record. After Denver's 34-31 overtime loss, Manning is now 8-11 when the temperature is 40 or below.

Manning has played only 19 of 255 career games in the cold, including three with the Broncos, during which he's used his new, cold-weather glove.

That small sample size still produces a season's worth of numbers. Manning's passer rating in the cold games: 83.1. His passer rating in all the other games: 97.0. His .421 winning percentage in cold-weather games is .273 lower than in the others.
