Wobblers or not, Peyton Manning is as good as ever at hitting his targets

So much is made of what Peyton Manning's passes look like after four neck operations and a season away from football.

Do they wobble? Do they spiral? Do they dip or dive?

No matter, they're almost always on target.

The Denver Broncos quarterback is completing 68 percent of his throws, just shy of his career high of 68.8 percent set in 2009, and that's with his top two targets dropping 15 passes.

Manning has been so precise that he's already completed at least 70 percent of his throws eight times this season, tying his career high. He's also on pace to throw for 4,669 yards, which would be 31 yards short of his career best.
