Manning Named AFC Offensive Player of the Month

Posted Nov 1, 2012

After throwing for 951 yards and nine touchdowns with a NFL-best passer rating of 126.7 in October, quarterback Peyton Manning was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- After putting together a historic three-game stretch in October, quarterback Peyton Manning has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October.

Manning led the AFC with 951 passing yards (317 per game), finishing 77-of-104 passing for a league-best 74 percent completion rate during October. His nine touchdown passes tied for the AFC lead and his 126.7 passer rating was tops in the NFL.

During the month, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 300 yards with three touchdowns and a 70 percent completion rate in three consecutive games. He also joined Steve Young as the only quarterbacks to throw for 300 yards with three touchdowns in four consecutive games.

The 15th-year quarterback was sacked just twice in 106 pass plays (1.9%) during October and was not sacked at all in two of the three games played during the month. Also, during that span he became just the second player in Broncos history (Jake Plummer, 2003) to post a quarterback rating of at least 115.0 in three consecutive games.

Denver finished 2-1 in the month, including a historic comeback win at San Diego during which Manning tied Dan Marino with his 47th career game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime. He was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for an NFL-record 22nd time following his effort against the Chargers.

The AFC Offensive Player of the Month honor is the fifth of Manning’s career, which ranks second among all players since the award’s inception in 1986. He becomes the seventh Broncos player to earn AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors and the first since Jay Cutler in September of 2008.
