Peyton Manning has taken his place in the elite company of those who have won multiple Associated Press NFL MVP awards. The other multiple winners are Jim Brown, Brett Favre, Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas, Kurt Warner, and Steve Young. Manning received 47 of 48 votes; Michael Vick received the other vote.
