Peyton Manning’s latest fourth-quarter dramatics have resulted in the Indianapolis Colts quarterback being named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week.
Manning passed for 327 yards and four touchdowns as the Colts remained unbeaten with a 35-34 win over the New England Patriots. He passed for two touchdowns to spark a 21-point fourth quarter, including the game-winning 1-yarder to Reggie Wayne with 13 seconds remaining.
It marks the 20th time in his 11-year career Manning has earned the weekly award. He was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September.
