Manning Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week For Second Time In 2013


For the second time this season, Peyton Manning has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. Reminder: We’re only three weeks into the season.

Manning went 32-for-37 (86.5%) for 374 yards and three touchdowns (135.8 rtg.) against the Oakland Raiders in their 37-21 win. It was just the sixth time in history that a player threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns while completing at least 85% of his passes.

Manning has 12 touchdowns on the year and no interceptions, which has never been done before three games into the season.

This week’s award is the 25th such award of his career. Tom Brady has the next most Player of the Week awards with 23.
