Peyton Manning Honored

Trever RobyContributor IOctober 15, 2008

After last Sundays amazing win over the Baltimore Ravens, Peyton Manning set career highs and racked up another AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the 17th time of his 11-year NFL career.

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.
