The votes are in, and the winners have been chosen!

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was awarded the NFL's FedEx NFL Air Player of the Week for the first time this season (Manning was the 2013 FedEx Air Player of the Year). Manning won for his spectacular performance against the Arizona Cardinals, in which he completed 31 of 47 passes for 479 yards and threw four touchdowns in the Broncos' 41-20 victory.

Because of his win, Denver's chapter of the American Red Cross will now be awarded a $2,000 donation in Manning's name. Very cool.

Congratulations Peyton!
