Is a 5th MVP in Sight for Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning?
Six games into the 2013 NFL season and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is playing nearly flawless football. The numbers that he has put up have him ahead of the pack for MVP honors. Manning has thrown for nearly 2,200 yards with a record 22 touchdowns in the first six games along with just two interceptions.
The number that jumps out at me is the amazing 11:1 touchdown to interception ratio. If he continues at that pace, assuming he throws three touchdowns a game, he could have 52 touchdowns and about five or six interceptions. That would be such an amazing feat. The touchdown number would break Tom Brady‘s 2007 record of 50 passing touchdowns, which beat Manning’s old record of 49. Of course it does help when you have great teammates to throw the football to that are skilled in doing their job.
I believe if Manning does continue at this pace, he is a lock to win the MVP. Remember that he was edged out by Minnesota Vikings‘ star running back Adrian Peterson for the honor last year. I’m not saying that losing it last year gave Manning motivation to perform at an even higher level this year, but Manning is just out there playing the game that he loves. Everything else comes second to him. Manning is the type of player who always finds ways to improve his game, no matter how great he played in the game.
But even then, at the age of 37, Manning continues to impress players and fans with the performance he brings every single game.
