He’s been named to the Pro Bowls an outstanding 13 times, won five illustrious NFL Most Valuable Player awards, and owns a coveted Super Bowl ring. Yet despite all of the success he reached during his prime, Peyton Manning recorded some of his best career feats ever at the ripe age of 37 when many thought his playing days were nearing an end.
The 2013 NFL season marked an incredible year for both Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos. In his second year in the Mile High City, the quarterback with the surgically repaired neck and typically referred to as “over the hill” put together one of the greatest seasons in NFL history. With the help of top targets Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas, and Julius Thomas, Manning was able to lead the league in completions, passing yards, and yards per game. More impressively, Manning was able to throw for 55 touchdowns in 2013, the most ever recorded by a quarterback in a single season of play. The future Hall of Famer’s second-to-none numbers and 13-3 record rightfully earned him a fifth NFL MVP award to add to his collection.
Although it’s only one week into the 2014 NFL season, Peyton Manning looks poised to repeat as league MVP. The quarterback tossed three touchdowns to his new favorite target Julius Thomas in a commanding victory over the Indianapolis Colts during a Sunday night game. If Manning can maintain his level of physical performance and football IQ (something that will never get away from this gridiron guru), Manning can surely top his own feat as the oldest player to ever win an NFL MVP award to cement his place among the greatest to grace the game.
