The NFL has announced its players of the month, and one honoree comes as no surprise.
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning won the AFC Player of the Month award for September after torching opponents with 16 touchdowns. Manning hasn't thrown a pick in four games, and he hasn't appeared mortal, either.

The New Orleans Saints pass-catcher -- after being left off the NFL Network's "The Top 100 Players of 2013" -- has proven to be the most dangerous tight end in the game through four weeks. He's just one reason the Saints are unbeaten, untied and very much the favorite in the NFC South.
