Louisiana native Peyton Manning wants another Super Bowl championship on his resume, but adding another MVP certainly doesn’t hurt.

Manning, quarterback of the Denver Broncos and son of former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning, added an NFL record 5th MVP award to his illustrious career bio. He breaks his own NFL record for MVPs, as no other player in league history has more than 3.

Peyton was unable to attend the “NFL Honors” award show to accept his associated press MVP award, as he is preparing for Sunday night’s Super Bowl matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

“I am humbled by this recognition and grateful to my family, Pat Bowlen, John Elway, John Fox and the entire Denver Broncos organization, and of course, my coaches and my teammates,” Manning said in a video speech. “Now, I sent a couple of guys over there tonight to pick up the trophy on my behalf. My father Archie and my son Marshall. Thank you very much and God bless you.”

In a touching moment, Archie and his young grandson Marshall walked on stage to accept the award.

Manning threw for NFL single-season records of 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards. He received 49 of 50 votes. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady received the lone vote that didn’t go to Manning.
