Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has won the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year award. Manning led the Broncos to a 13-3 record and a division championship in his first season since missing a full year of football to recover from four neck surgeries. Manning beat Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to win the award. Peterson came just shy of the NFL record for most rushing yards in a season after suffering a devastating knee injury at the end of the prior season.
