Peyton Manning wins historic 5th MVP

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Peyton Manning has earned his place as an NFL quarterback legend.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning received 49 votes out of 50 for this year’s MVP award, while Tom Brady only received 1 vote. This is Manning’s 5th MVP award, which is an NFL record and 2 more than any other player in the history of the game.

He also won Offensive Player of the Year, which isn’t too surprising considering his 5,477 passing yards and 55 passing touchdowns this year broke the NFL’s single-season passing records.

“This is a very special award,” Manning said. “I am extremely honored to have it presented by Joe Montana and Aaron Rodgers. I am humbled by this recognition and grateful to my family, Pat Bowlen, John Elway, John Fox and the entire Denver Bronco organization, and of course, my coaches and my teammates.”
