Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh are shown more often than any other coach and quarterback during NFL television broadcasts, a study from the Wall Street Journal found

The Journal analyzed two games this season for each NFL team and counted each time a team's head coach or quarterback was shown on the sidelines. The study does not specify which games were analyzed. 

Harbaugh, the Patriots' Bill Belichick and Eagles coach Chip Kelly were the top three coaches. Manning, Tom Brady and Teddy Bridgewater topped the list of quarterbacks.

While Manning was the top-ranked quarterback, his coach, John Fox, came in at 26th. Similarly, Harbaugh's quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, ranked 25th.

The Packers' Mike McCarthy was shown the fewest number of times among coaches, while Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon was shown fewer times than any other starter.
