I was trying to think of who he would be tied with and looked up George Seifert. His Niners went 14-2 then won 10 in a row the year after that. Seems like some shoddy fact checking going on at NBC. 

As you said, he was 14-2 in the regular season in 1989 and then went 3-0 in the playoffs to win the Super Bowl. And then won the first 10 to start 1990. 

So, his start was 27-2. 

The two games he lost? 

His first loss was to the Rams by the score of 13-12 on a FG with 2 seconds left. 

The second loss was to the Majik Man Packers in Candlestick Park. Brent Fullwood had 16 carries for 76 yards, Sterling Sharpe caught a TD, and Majkowski ran for two scores.

The 2007 Patriots stats have to be taken with a grain of salt because unlike some of these other teams (2011 Packers, 2018 Chiefs), Belichick/Brady would run up scores in the 4th quarter quite a bit. There were times they were throwing bombs to Moss up 3-4 TDs in the middle of the 4th.

Not sure how PFF gets 3.73 per drive but Football Outsiders has us at 4.04 points per drive. They don't include end of game kneel down possessions (we have two) and same for end of half which we had vs New Orleans. 

I'm still trying to figure out the 3.73 number.

The offense has 28 drives if not including Victory formation, and 31 if you do.

The offense has accounted for 113 points (Subtracting the 7 on a INT TD and 2 on safety from defense)

113/28 = 4.04 so I get that.

113/31 = 3.64, so I'm not sure what/how PFF gets to 3.73

Ummm, this has been Payton / Brees pretty much every year theyโ€™ve been together that Brees could throw a pass more than 10 yards.
