Peyton Manning, Jimmy Graham named NFL players of the month for September
In a true stunner that deserves a recount, Manning won the AFC Player of the Month award. Manning threw 16 touchdown passes and no interception while leading the Denver Broncos to a 4-0 mark.
On the NFC side of things, Jimmy Graham took home the NFC Player of the Month after dominating opposing defenses. Graham hauled in six touchdowns from Drew Brees, leaving no doubt as to who the best tight end in football is. He has 27 catches for 458 yards after the first month of play.
Graham is the first tight end to ever win the award since the league started handing them out in 1986, according to Randall Liu.
