It’s kind of a badge of honor when you think about it.

Finding a way to lose 100 regular season games as an NFL quarterback isn’t a black mark — it’s a testament to durability. On Thanksgiving night, Eli Manning joined a list of passers that includes Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Fran Tarkenton, and even his own father in the triple-digit failure club.

The Giants’ 20-10 loss to Washington brought Manning’s career record down to 110-100, making him just the eighth quarterback in league history to lose 100 games or more. Despite the ignominious honor, he can at least take solace that he’s had nearly three times as many NFL wins as his father:

NFL QBs with the most regular season losses, all-time

Quarterback Regular season wins Regular season losses
Quarterback Regular season wins Regular season losses
Vinny Testaverde 90 123
Brett Favre 186 112
Fran Tarkenton 124 109
Drew Brees 138 103
Warren Moon 102 101
Archie Manning 35 101
Eli Manning 109 100
Norm Snead 52 100
Kerry Collins 81 99
Drew Bledsoe 98 95

Manning will likely pass Moon and gain some ground on Brees before 2017 is over — New York is in the midst of a 2-9 season. With New Orleans trending upward, it’s possible Manning and Brees will head into 2018 all tied up and ready to take aim at Brett Favre at No. 2.

Despite Manning’s fiery speech last week that helped the Giants upset the Chiefs in overtime, the team couldn’t carry that momentum to Thursday night. The Giants will have the opportunity to add to their QB’s record-nearing total next Sunday when they face the Raiders.
