Peyton Manning Unanimous All-Pro, Makes 7th Team

NEW YORK (AP) - Peyton Manning is the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team. It's his seventh time as a first-teamer, tying Hall of Famer Otto Graham for the most by a quarterback.

The Denver star set NFL records this season with 55 touchdown passes and 5,477 yards through the air.

He was chosen Friday on all 50 ballots from media members who regularly cover the NFL. Manning also was an All-Pro in 2003, '04, '05, '08, '09 and last season.

New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham and Indianapolis outside linebacker Robert Mathis each drew 49 votes. Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy and Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman had 48.

Minnesota kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson is the only rookie on the squad.

Eighteen NFC players and nine from the AFC have made the team.

Mike Tolbert, Ryan Kalil and Luke Kuechly all made the first team in their respective positions for the Carolina Panthers. Greg Hardy made the second team.
