Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was named AFC offensive player of the week, but that’s almost stopped being news.
The honor was his 22nd in his career, which is a league record.
Manning was 24-of-30 for 309 yards and three touchdowns, leading his team to an amazing comeback over the Chargers, scoring 35 unanswered points in the second half to overcome a 24-0 deficit.
They were just the fifth team in league history
It included his 47th game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime, which tied Dan Marino for most in post-merger history (since 1970).
The honor gives him a edge over Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has been named player of the week 21 times.
