Peyton Manning has been named NFL MVP by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).
Manning has been in exceptional form for the Denver Broncos this season, setting NFL records in passing yards (5,477) and touchdown passes (55).
Manning's exploits saw the Broncos finish the regular season as top seeds in the AFC with a 13-3 record, and he and his teammates are currently preparing to face the New England Patriots in the conference Championship game this Sunday.
This is the fourth time Manning has won the PFWA award (previously 2004, 2008, 2009) and is the second Broncos player to be named MVP by the association after running back Terrell Davis won in 1998.
Manning also came out on top as the Offensive Player of the year.
St. Louis Rams' defensive end Robert Quinn was selected as the 2013 defensive player of the year.
Quinn led the NFC with 19 sacks and led the NFL in sack yards (145).
