ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning made more NFL history on Thursday, when he was named the AFC Player of the Month for December. It’s Manning’s fourth Player of the Month award as a Bronco, which ties him with Terrell Davis for the most in team history.

It’s the eighth Player of the Month award for Manning in his career, which continued to increase his NFL record in that category. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are the next closest active players, with six awards to their respective names.

Manning completed just under 70 percent of his passes in December for 1,755 yards, 19 touchdowns and just three interceptions. He led all AFC quarterbacks in pass attempts, completions, completion percentage, passing yards, passing touchdowns, quarterback rating and first downs.

The Broncos went 4-1 as a team in December, clinching the No. 1 overall playoff seed in the AFC.

    To “Frank”…. Unless you take into account… Pride for the City, State, and Region, Continued Success for a sports team that employs your fellow citizen, millions of dollars that help sustain and maintain our community, potential “bonus” income for an athlete that we know is caring, considerate, and philanthropic with his salary, prolongs support for an American Tradition that millions participate in, enjoy, and look forward to on a weekly basis, and it reminds us, with your reaction, that there are people in this country, who will always be nasty, offended, and malicious towards others who obtain any kind of success…
    If you want to disregard all of this… than, yeah….it means nothing.
