Week 17 was a busy one for Peyton Manning. In Denver’s 38-3 win over Kansas City, the Broncos quarterback earned his second AFC Offensive Player of the Week award, while also locking up just about every team single-season passing record.
Manning completed 23 of 29 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns, while achieving a passer rating of 144.8 as the Broncos beat the Chiefs at Sports Authority Field. The 144.8 passer rating was the highest single-game rating by any quarterback in the AFC this season.
Manning’s yards, completion percentage, first down throws and yards per attempt all ranked first in the AFC for the week according to denverbroncos.com.
The Player of the Week award is Manning’s 23rd of his career, which ties him with Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady for the most all-time.
The Broncos have combined to win either the AFC Offensive, Defensive or Special teams Player of the Week eight times this season, which is the most by any team in the NFL.
Manning also secured the Broncos’ single-season records in touchdowns, completions, completion percentage, passer rating and passing yards.
The win gave the Broncos the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs.
