Manning Earns Player of the Month Honor

Posted Jan 3, 2013

Quarterback Peyton Manning earned his sixth career AFC Offensive Player of the Month Award.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – For the second time in three months, and just one day after earning the conference’s player of the week award, quarterback Peyton Manning has been named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month.

Manning completed 123-of-174 passes for an NFL-best 70.7 completion percentage during the month of December. That completion rate was seven percent higher than the next closest passer.

PLAYERS WITH SIX CONF. PLAYER OF THE MONTH AWARDS
Player Type Conference
Peyton Manning Offensive AFC
Barry Sanders Offensive NFC
Bruce Smith Defensive AFC
Tom Brady Offensive AFC
Brett Favre Offensive NFC
Aaron Rodgers Offensive NFC
Steve Young Offensive NFC

He also paced the AFC in yards per attempt (8.0), touchdowns (11), first-down percentage (42 percent) and a passer rating of 108.4 that was 18.1 points higher than the next closest player.

The 15th-year signal caller became just the third quarterback in NFL history (Kurt Warner, 2001/Drew Brees, 2011) to lead his team to a perfect record in the final month of the season while passing for at least 1,300 yards, throwing for at least 10 touchdowns and completing 70 percent of his passes.

The Broncos’ 5-0 record in December helped the club secure the AFC’s top playoff seed.

The monthly award is the sixth of his career, tying him for the most career monthly accolades since the award began in 1986. Manning had never won two in the same season prior to this year.

Manning previously earned the award this season for the month of October, in which he passed for 951 yards with nine touchdowns and one interception for a passer rating of 126.7.
