After setting to monumental NFL records in the last two games of the season, it comes as no surprise that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been named AFC Player of the Month for December. Manning led the Broncos to a 4-1 record in December with 1,755 passing yards and 19 touchdowns as well as breaking the single season record for touchdown passes and passing yards.

Today, the NFL honored Manning with a Player of the Month award for the eighth time in his career, another league record. The latest Player of the Month award is Manning’s fourth as a Denver Bronco.

There is no doubt the Denver Broncos would be the team they are without Peyton Manning at the reigns. For the second consecutive year, with Manning’s help, the Broncos have clinched home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a 13-3 record.

Manning and the Broncos must now play the waiting game as they await the results of this weekend’s Wild Card games. Whether it be the Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs or San Diego Chargers, the Broncos will host the lowest seeded team on Jan. 12 for the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs.
