He turns 37 on March 24.

John Fox has some bad news for the other 31 NFL teams: Peyton Manning could be even better in 2013. Fox says a year ago the Broncos were doing homework on Manning. They saw a dramatic improvement in Manning's workouts last offseason at Duke, and then with the quarterback's passing in the second half of the 2012 season. Manning led Denver to the AFC's best record, 13-3.||||||| The Denver coach says Thursday at the league's annual scouting combine that with another offseason to heal and to fine-tune his comfort with Denver's offense, the four-time MVP and reigning Comeback Player of the Year could have a more impressive second season in the Mile High City.

Before sitting out 2011, Manning had never missed a start in his first 13 seasons with Indianapolis.

Manning tied yet another NFL record Thursday, this one held by Tom Brady, when he won his sixth career Offensive Player of the Month award.

Manning said he's been "OK the past two weeks," but he's been more than that - his completion percentage was 5.8 points higher and his QB rating was 19.2 points better with the glove.
