Peyton Manning is the NFL MVP.

OK, he hasn’t officially been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player by the Associated Press, but he has been given that honor by the Professional Football Writers of America.

The PFWA not only named Manning their MVP, but their Offensive Player of the Year as well.

For Manning, this is the fourth time he’s won the PFWA MVP (2004, 2008, 2009, 2013) and he’s in line for what would be his fifth NFL MVP as well. It would set a new NFL record, just like Manning did this year by throwing for more touchdowns (55), more yards (5,477) with more passing first downs (289) and points scored (606) than any offense in the history of the NFL.

That award is announced during NFL Honors, which takes place the night before the Super Bowl, February 1.

Before then, Manning leads the men in orange and blue against his arch rival, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, Sunday January 19. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. MST.
