Manning Takes Third MVP Award
D1 co-owner Peyton Manning was named the NFL's MVP award on Friday in a landslide victory. "I know it's an individual award, but ... truly, in my opinion, a team award,'' said Manning, who received 32 votes. This award, which is voted on by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL, ties Manning with legendary quarterback Brett Favre as the only player to ever take the MVP award three times. In the Colts nine game winning streak, Manning is 209-of-290 for 2,248 yards and 17 touchdowns, with only three interceptions. He extended his NFL record with his ninth 4,000-yard season and finished with 27 touchdown passes, 12 interceptions and a 95.0 passer rating. Congratulations on making history Peyton, we're all proud of you!!
