BRONCOS QB PEYTON MANNING NAMED AFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the 27th time in his career, the NFL informed the Broncos on Wednesday.

Manning completed 22-of-26 passes (84.6%) for 318 yards with four touchdowns (157.2 rtg.) in Denver’s 42-17 win against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. His third touchdown of the evening gave him 509 for his career, breaking Brett Favre’s all-time record. He became the eighth player since 1943 to hold the NFL record, doing so in his 246th career regular-season game played and 8,659th career attempt.

His 84.6-percent passing mark represented the third-highest single-game figure of his career (fourth-highest in Broncos history) and his 157.2 rating was his highest as a Bronco (2012-pres.) and sixth-highest of his career. His performance also marked the 10th time he has passed for at least 300 yards while posting four or more touchdowns and zero interceptions in a regular-season game.

This is the 27th time Manning has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, adding to his NFL record total of conference recognitions. It’s the sixth time he has earned the honor with Denver (Weeks 6, & 17 in 2012 and Weeks 1, 3 & 13 in 2013) and the 56th time a Broncos player has taken home the award (third Bronco this season: TE Julius Thomas – Wk. 1; WR Demaryius Thomas – Wk. 5).
