Rant My Life: Peyton Manning Deserves MVP Honors This Season
There were plenty of questions surrounding whether the Denver Broncos made the right decision this offseason to send Tim Tebow to the New York Jets and bring Peyton Manning on board–despite the fact that he missed the entire 2011 season while recovering from four neck surgeries. With Week 14 officially underway after the Broncos defeated the Oakland Raiders 26-13 on Thursday Night Football, it’s safe to say there are no regrets on Denver’s end when it comes to Manning as the future Hall of Famer is having an MVP type season.
Manning was solid once again as he completed 26 of 36 passes for 310 yards with one touchdown as the Broncos picked up their eighth-straight win to improve to 10-3 on the season and clinch the AFC West with three games remaining in the regular season. On the season, Manning has already set a franchise record with 30 touchdown passes and recorded his 12th straight 10-win season following Thursday’s game–which happens to be an NFL record.
It’s amazing to see Manning return to his old dominant self considering nobody even knew if he would be even to throw a ball the same without any problems. There are plenty of players in the league having phenominal seasons, but there’s no question Manning deserves to take home MVP honors with everything he’s accomplished in Denver this season.
Everybody expected the Broncos to be contenders in the AFC West, but nobody expected them to emerge as one of the top teams in the Conference–most of which is due to Manning.
