Manning named AFC Offensive POW, is rocking the key QB metrics

Peyton Manning has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 6 performance against the Chargers.

It's the 22nd time Manning has won the award, and the first time a Bronco has been chosen for it since Brandon Marshall in Week 13 of the 2009 season. Peyton completed 24 of 30 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns, but threw one interception that came back for a score.

The Denver QB currently ranks third in the league in touchdown percentage(6.2%), is tied with Aaron Rodgers for sixth-best in interception rate (1.8%), and is tied with Andy Dalton for fourth-best in yards per attempt (8.0).

He's tied with RG3 for the top Adjusted Yards per Attempt (8.4) in the league, and he trails only his brother Eli in Net Yards per Attempt (7.4).

In terms of Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt (7.8), a PFR metric that is the best at measuring past results (NY/A is more predictive), Peyton stands alone atop the league.
