Peyton Manning was a unanimous selection to the 2013 All-Pro team, to the surprise of nobody. This is his seventh time being named to the first team.
Louis Vasquez joined him on the first team, which was a first selection for him.
Demaryius Thomas and Matt Prater were named to the second team. Vasquez, Thomas, and Prater are all first-time selections.
During a month in which he broke several NFL and franchise records, Manning threw for 19 touchdowns against three interceptions, with a 116.5 QB rating.
Players have off today and tomorrow and will resume practice on Thursday, in preparation for their divisional round playoff game.
This figures to be a busy day as far as coaching gigs go, so check back for updates and analysis.

Last week, Peyton Manning broke the single-season touchdown pass record. On Sunday, Manning and the Broncos needed just two quarters to rewrite much of the rest of the NFL's record book.
Peyton threw for 266 yards - the exact number he needed to break the single-season record held by Drew Brees - and four touchdowns, giving him 55 on the season. It's his ninth time hitting the four-score mark this season, extending his own NFL record.
Denver's final injury report for Week 17 contained no surprises: Wes Welker, Derek Wolfe, and Steve Vallos have been ruled out, while Kayvon Webster is questionable.
Wolfe did make a limited return to practice on Friday, while Welker and Webster were again limited.
