Manning Named Most Valuable Player

Posted Feb 1, 2014

Quarterback Peyton Manning was named NFL MVP after completing a record-breaking campaign and leading the Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII.

NEW YORK -- After posting a historic, record-breaking campaign in the regular season, helping the Broncos score more points than any other team in NFL history, and leading the Broncos to the Super Bowl, quarterback Peyton Manning has been named the Most Valuable Player for the 2013 season.

Manning was also honored as the Offensive Player of the Year for his efforts this season.

For the season, Manning set NFL records by throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns – and helping the Broncos set their own league record by scoring 606 points in the regular season.

Manning also threw only 10 interceptions in the regular season and posted a quarterback rating of 115.1 – the second-best mark of his career. He finished with a quarterback rating of over 90.0 in all but one regular-season contest, and posted a rating exceeding 140.0 in three different games (in wins over Baltimore in Week 1, Philadelphia in Week 4, and Oakland in Week 17).

He also threw for four-or-more touchdowns in nine different games, including tying an NFL record with seven touchdown passes against the Ravens in the season opener on Sept. 5.

Manning was also honored as the FedEx Air Player of the Year. With that award comes a $25,000 donation in his name to the Junior Achievement chapters in Denver.

The quarterback was named FedEx Air Player of the Week four times this season.

Manning was certainly at his best on the biggest stage of the Broncos’ season thus far, completing 32-of-43 passes for 400 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Denver’s 26-16 win over New England in the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 19, helping the Broncos advance to Super Bowl XLVIII.

“He’s been remarkable,” Head Coach John Fox said after the AFC Championship Game. “It’s been unprecedented for what he did, even a year ago, to come off from not playing, (a) very unusual injury that he was coming off of. To get to where he finished a season ago and then to start where he left off, to have the kind of season, not just today, but all season long that he’s had, to me is pretty remarkable.”

“There’s not much you can say, Peyton is Peyton,” wide receiver Demaryius Thomas added after that game.

With this, his fifth MVP award, Manning reset his own record for the most in NFL history.
