Manning Nominated for FedEx Award

Posted Oct 1, 2013

For the third time this season, quarterback Peyton Manning has been nominated for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award.

 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The award nominations continue to mount for quarterback Peyton Manning during his unprecedented start to the 2013 NFL season. 

After helping lead the Broncos to a franchise-record 52 points in their victory over the Eagles on Sunday by throwing for 327 yards and four touchdowns, Manning has again been nominated as a finalist for the FedEx Air Player of the Week.

Manning won the award in Week 1 and Week 3 for his historic performances in the Broncos’ 49-27 win over the Ravens and 37-21 victory against the Raiders.

His showing on Sunday was arguably his most efficient yet – Manning posted a season-high quarterback rating of 146.0, extending his NFL-record streak of posting a quarterback rating of 90.0 or higher in 16 consecutive regular season games.

“He’s an exceptional player and he prepares like nobody else,” wide receiver Wes Welker said after the Eagles game. “He’s kind of the catalyst for getting everything going.”

For the season, Manning leads the NFL in numerous passing categories. His 1,470 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, 75.0 completion percentage and 138.0 quarterback rating are all league-best marks – his quarterback rating is nearly 20 points higher than the next closest passer.

Manning’s 16 touchdowns without an interception tied Milt Plum’s record that has stood for 53 years as the best such start to a season in NFL history. 

The quarterback has attributed much of his success to the overall execution of the Broncos offense.

“Guys are doing a good job in the passing game. The protection has been solid,” Manning said after the game on Sunday. “Receivers are doing a good job with the ball after the catch, getting first downs, getting touchdowns. That puts a lot of pressure on the defense.”

“This is the ultimate team game. A lot goes into it,” Head Coach John Fox added. “From the protection to him going through his reads properly, to delivering the ball on time, to routes being the right depth, to getting the protection, or maybe they’re switching the protection – there’s a lot of work and study that goes into this by all the players. It’s an 11-man operation.”
