Demaryius Thomas: The big-time receiver took over the game late in the second quarter and finished the game with seven catches for 134 yards and a TD. Thomas was quiet early in the championship contest but once the Patriots’ Aqib Talib went out of the game, DT was able to exploit the mismatch.
Terrance Knighton: The man they call “Pot Roast” was a handful on the defensive line. He made the play of the game when he sacked Tom Brady on 4th and 1 in the third quarter. Knighton had another tackle for loss as well. He has flourished this season after reuniting with defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.
Peyton Manning: Because the quarterback deserves an award or accolade he can get. He beat his nemesis in Tom Brady in the AFC title game. All the talk about his struggles in the postseason should not be brought up this season as the quarterback has been outstanding. He continues to prove why he is the MVP.
