KUSA - Off to a 4-0 start with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was named the AFC player of the month for an NFL-record seventh time, the league announced Thursday.
Teammate Trindon Holliday was named the AFC special teams player of the month for his 330 return yards and two touchdowns, including an 81-yard punt return and the 105-yard kickoff return against Philadelphia.
Manning's record start included the seven-TD performance in the season opener against Baltimore. He has thrown for 1,470 yards and a 75 percent completion rate (117-of-156 passing).
It is the first time in Broncos' history the team has had two players honored in the same month. Denver next plays Sunday at Dallas (2-2). Kickoff is 2:25 p.m. at Cowboys Stadium.
