Going back the last 13 years,

Year Team OFF DEF(points)

99 Ravens 14 - 1
00 Rams 1 - 4
01 Patriots 6 - 6
02 Buccaneers 18 - 1
03 Patriots 12 - 1
04 Patriots 4 - 2
05 Steelers 9 - 3
06 Colts 2 - 23
07 Giants 14 - 17
08 Steelers 20 - 1
09 Saints 1 - 20
10 Packers 10 - 2
11 Giants 9 - 25
Judging by the Colt's Offensive Scoring Rank over Manning's last 10 years, I would say we're looking pretty good:

2010 - 4
2009 - 7
2008 - 13
2007 - 3
2006 - 2
2005 - 2
2004 - 1
2003 - 2
2002 - 17
2001 - 2
