BRONCOS QB PEYTON MANNING & WR TRINDON HOLLIDAY NAMED AFC PLAYERS OF THE MONTH

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for an NFL-record seventh time and wide receiver Trindon Holliday earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Month recognition for the first time in his career, the National Football League announced on Thursday.

This marks the first time in team history that two Broncos have received conference Player of the Month honors in the same month.
 

*****

 Manning completed 117-of-156 passes (75.0%) for 1,470 yards with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions (138.0 rtg.) in the month of September while leading Denver to a 4-0 start for the seventh time in team history. He led the NFL in nearly every passing category in September with his 16 touchdowns representing the most by a player in league history through four games.

He directed an offense that produced 179 points during the opening month—the second highest scoring output in NFL history through four games (Dallas – 183, 1966). Included in the total was a franchise single-game scoring mark in Denver’s 52-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.

His 201 consecutive passes without an interception—dating to last season—is the longest streak of his career and the second-longest such streak in team history (Jake Plummer - 229, 2005). Additionally, he joins former Cleveland quarterback Milt Plum as the only player in league annals to throw for 16 touchdowns in a season before recording an interception.

The honor represents the seventh of Manning’s career and his third since joining the Broncos in 2012. His three conference Player of the Month awards as a Bronco rank second in team history behind running back Terrell Davis (4).

Holliday totaled 13 punt returns for 191 yards (14.7 avg.), including an 81-yard touchdown, and three kickoff returns for 139 yards (46.3 avg.), including a 105-yard touchdown, during the month of September.

Representing the only NFL player to record multiple special-teams return scores during the opening month of the season, Holliday joins former Bronco Rick Upchurch as the only individuals in team history with two seasons recording multiple special-teams return scores.

The fourth-year player ranks first in NFL history with a special-teams return touchdown every 3.5 career games played (6 TDs in 21 GP), including the postseason. His six return touchdowns rank second in the Broncos’ record books to Upchurch’s eight career return scores.

Holliday’s honor represents just the seventh time a Bronco has earned conference Special Teams Player of the Month recognition. Kicker Matt Prater was the last individual to receive the award (Dec./Jan. 2011).
