Peyton Manning Named AFC Player Of The Month


Peyton Manning is quickly showing folks that age is just a number.

On Thursday the 37 year-old picked up his NFL record seventh career offensive player of the month honor.

Manning’s season is off to a historic start.

The former Tennessee Volunteer has thrown 16 touchdown passes with no interceptions in four games. He’s averaging 367.5 passing yards a game.

That puts him on pace for 5,880 yards, 64 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

Of course there’s no way he attains those numbers, but there’s no doubt Manning is playing at the highest level possibele right now.

A lot of folks wrote off Manning after he missed the entire 2011 season. He was released by the Colts and went in search of a team. He settled for the Broncos and the rocky mountains, which appears to have been the perfect destination.

Anyone that’s listened to Manning for any length of time understands while the personal accolades are nice, all he wants is another Super Bowl win.

The way Manning and the Broncos are playing right now, it’d be a shock if they didn’t represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.
