Peyton Manning wins 2013 NFL Offensive Player of the Year award


In news that should really not come as a shock to anyone, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has been named the 2013 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, less than 24 hours before he goes after the second Super Bowl ring of his career against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48.


This announcement isn’t a shock because Manning had probably the greatest offensive performance in 2013 of any player in the history of the National Football League.

In leading Denver through 2013 and the AFC Championship, Manning shattered records with 5,477 yards, 55 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions. He also finished the year with a 68.3% completion percentage.

His second year in Denver was undoubtedly his best, and 2013 was further validation that he’s up for the title of greatest of all time when all is said and done. A victory over Seattle on Sunday will put a stamp on that.

With Manning’s dynamic efforts, the Broncos were the owners of the most dominant offense in the NFL this season.
