Peyton was just robbed of another AFC Player of the Week Award

Peyton only plays 3 quarters and throws 4 touchdowns against 0 interceptions. Rivers played the entire game, only threw 3 touchdowns with one pick, and because he did not do enough earlier in the game to put the game away, he had to come from behind to win. So somehow Rivers gets the AFC player of the week award? Ridiculous.

Let's compare:

Passer Rating:

Manning - 146.0

Rivers - 120.3

QBR

Manning - 95.9 (second highest of any QB this season)

Rivers - 81.3

Someone help me to understand what I am missing. Did they not want to give it to Manning 3 weeks out of 4? The lesson is that you are a better QB if you are worse for 3 quarters and are forced to come from behind in the 4th quarter than if you put the game away by the end of the 3rd and do not take a single snap in the 4th quarter. Got it.
