(Photo: Kirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports) For the 23rd time in his career, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week following Denver’s 38-3 win over Kansas City on Sunday. Manning is now tied with New England’s Tom Brady for the most weekly offensive awards won all-time, with Miami’s retired legend Dan Marino (18) behind them, soon to be passed by New Orlean’s Drew Brees (18).  When John Elway played, he won 15 such awards. Manning went 23-of-29 for 304 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions on Sunday, earning a 144.8 passer rating.  On the season, Manning went 400-of-583 (68.6%) for 4,659 yards and 37 touchdowns, breaking franchise records for completions, passing yards and touchdowns in a single season. “What (Peyton) has done, to be coming off that kind of rehab, that type of injury at his position in a new city with a new team is unprecedented. Historical would be the word I would use,” Coach John Fox said on Sunday after the Broncos finished the season 13-3 and wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the AFC Playoff race. Manning and the Broncos have a week off this week after earning a first round bye in the playoffs.  It’ll be back to business next week when Denver hosts a divisional game on Saturday, January 12.
