DENVER (CBS4) – Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has won more awards.
Manning won a pair of ESPYs (the sports version of the Emmys) during a ceremony broadcast on ESPN on Wednesday night.
He won the ESPY for Best NFL Player and for Best Record-Breaking Performance.
Manning’s season with the Broncos last year was arguably the greatest season by a quarterback in NFL history. He broke the single season passing record and also smashed the record for most passing touchdowns in a season.
Legendary quarterback Dan Marino and NBA MVP Kevin Durant handed him the Record-Breaking Performance award during the ceremony.
“I won my first ESPY in 1998 as the college player of the year and I received the award from Tyra Banks that year, and I didn’t think it could get any better than that,” Manning joked on the show. “But this is very, very special.”
