Quarterback Peyton Manning’s remarkable comeback season has earned him the honor of AFC Offensive Player of the Year at the NFL 101 Awards.
The 43rd Annual NFL 101 Awards — the nation’s premier football awards event dedicated exclusively to the NFL — will be held in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday, March 2.
It marks the seventh time Manning has won an NFL 101 Award, the most of any player.
Manning finished the regular season with 4,659 passing yards, 37 touchdowns and a passer rating of 105.8, which led the AFC. His 68.6 completion rate was tied for first in the entire league.
The 12-time Pro Bowler was voted the recipient of the award by 101 members of the national media.
