Peyton Manning has won the AP NFL MVP award, becoming only the second player in history to be a three-time MVP. The Colts began the season at 3-4; but, have finished the year with a 9-game winning streak. Manning has, of course, been an integral part of the Colts’ comeback. This is Manning’s ninth 4,000+ yard season, during which he has thrown 27 touchdown passes with only 12 interceptions. In response to being named the MVP, Manning stated that this season has ” been the most rewarding regular season that I’ve been a part of in my 11 years, and I have to believe a lot of the other players and even coaches might feel the same way.”

Manning easily won the MVP vote, getting 32 votes overall. His next two closest competitors were Chad Pennington and Michael Turner, who received 4 votes each.
