KUSA - For an NFL-record 24th time in Peyton Manning's career, the Denver Broncos quarterback was named AFC offensive player of the week, the league announced Wednesday.
Manning threw an NFL-record tying seven touchdowns in Thursday's win over Baltimore, and he completed 27-of-42 passes for 462 yards in the 49-27 victory over the Ravens.
Manning, who spent 14 seasons in Indianapolis and won the award 21 times there, was tied with New England's Tom Brady with 23 player of the week selections. Manning was the player of the week twice last season for the Broncos.
Denver next plays Sunday at the New York Giants.
