He's the second player to get such an honor this season; Gary Brackett was awarded AFC's defensive player of the week last week.
Manning completed 19 of 28 passes for 271 yards three touchdowns with no interceptions for a season-high passer rating of 134.7 in a 31-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. It was the Colts' first victory in the new Lucas Oil Stadium.
After a stumbling in the start of the season, it seems like Peyton Manning has finally found a grove with this offense once again. The Colts will face the Green Bay Packers this Sunday at 4:15 pm at Lambeau Field. This will be the first time the Colts have visited Lambeau Field since the 2000 season, and it will [with a doubt] test this teams consistency and willingness to win.
