A pair of Vols pick up NFL awards

It was a good month for a pair of former Vols and now Peyton Manning and Cordarrelle Patterson have the hardware to prove it.

The NFL named Manning AFC Player of the Month for December while Patterson picked up the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month as well.

Manning threw for 1,755 yards in five December games, with 19 touchdowns to just three interceptions. He also set both the single season records for touchdown passes and passing yards.

Patterson showed off his ability to do a little bit of everything. Patterson caught 3 TD passes and ran for 3 more in the Vikings 5 games.
