Q: QB Peyton Manning led Denver to a 31-23 comeback win over the Bengals Sunday, marking his 48th career comeback victory in the fourth quarter or overtime. How many times have the Bengals led Manning's teams since 1999?

1982 – Notre Dame upsets No. 1-ranked Pittsburgh 31-16 at Pitt Stadium. Coming in, Pitt is 7-0-0 while the Fighting Irish are ranked 20th, at 5-1-1.

But Carter pitches the ball back to Kiel, who hits wide receiver Joe Howard for a 54-yard score. Freshman tailback Allen Pinkett crosses the goal line on runs of 76 and seven yards to put the game out of reach. Pitt, which won the 1981 national title, finishes the 1982 season at 9-3-0, which leads many to doubt the potential of Panthers QB Dan Marino. Before the season, some experts had projected him as the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft. Marino is chosen 27th by the Dolphins in the 1983 draft, behind five other quarterbacks.
