McNabb's teams were cumulatively seeded higher than Manning's and thus played more games at home: Specifically, of the Eagles' 12 playoff games with McNabb starting, eight were at home, three were on the road, and one was at a neutral site, while only four of the Colts' nine postseason games with Manning at QB were at home, and five were on the road.

So naturally McNabb's record is going to be a bit better than Manning's (and both have each lost twice at home and twice as favorites), given the fact that home teams have won upwards of 75% of all playoff games.
