Peyton Manning took Tim Tebow’s place as the Denver Broncos’ quarterback, and he has also topped Tebow in having the best-selling jersey in the NFL.

The NFL revealed today that Manning’s Broncos jersey has been the best seller on NFLShop.com over the last two months, with Tebow’s Jets jersey checking in at No. 2.

A pair of rookie quarterbacks were next: The Redskins jersey with the surname (and Roman numerals) of Robert Griffin III came in third, while Andrew Luck’s Indianapolis Colts jersey came in fourth.

The best-selling jersey for a non-quarterback was Patrick Willis’s 49ers jersey. Willis checked in at No. 7, after Manning, Tebow, Griffin, Luck, Eli Manning and Aaron Rodgers.
