Peyton Manning Wins AFC Offensive Player of the Month


Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

For the fourth time since joining the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month. The honor comes after he passed for 1,755 yards (145-of-214 passing) and 19 touchdowns in December. He threw just three interceptions last month.

During the final month of the regular season, he led all AFC players in attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards, passing touchdowns, quarterback rating, and first downs. He also set the league’s single-season records for passing yards (4,477) and passing touchdowns (55).

This is the eighth time in Manning’s career that he’s won the conference player of the month award.

Keep in mind that Manning did this all while sitting out an entire half during the Broncos win over the Raiders.

He’s the league’s MVP and he is arguably the greatest football player of all time.
