Peyton Manning, Jimmy Graham More Than Deserving of Monthly AFC, NFC Awards
Prior to the start of Week 5, the NFL announced its two Player of the Month winners, which included Peyton Manning in the AFC and Jimmy Graham in the NFC. The announcement of these awards is historical in multiple senses, as you’ve probably noticed the performances of these two players in the past four weeks.
Manning is on pace for the greatest season by a quarterback in NFL history, which would be a feat so unfathomable we can’t describe it. The man is set to throw for almost 6,000 yards, 64 touchdowns and less than four interceptions. Technically he’s on pace to throw zero because he’s already the first quarterback in history to throw at least 150 passes in a season without a pick. Oh, and this is the seventh time he’s won the award — another record — and he’s 37 years old!
Graham is the first tight end to ever win a Player of the Month award, and for good reason. The New Orleans Saints‘ stud pass-catcher caught 27 balls for 458 yards and six touchdowns in four September victories. If he catches one touchdown in Week 5, he’ll tie the NFL record for most touchdowns by a tight end in the first give games of the season. This guy is in a contract year and you can bet New Orleans will show him the money before next season.
Congrats to both of these guys for their historic performances in September, but if they keep it up, each of them will be winning a whole lot more than just one Player of the Month award in 2013.
