New York, NY (Sports Network) - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd and Baltimore Ravens kick returner/wide receiver Jacoby Jones were named the AFC Players of the Week for Week 6.

Manning completed 24-of-30 passes for 309 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Broncos' 35-24 come-from-behind win at San Diego. Manning helped Denver storm back from a 24-0 deficit, making them the first team in NFL history to win by double digits after trailing by at least 24.

In the process, Manning recorded his 47th career game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime to tie Hall of Famer Dan Marino for the most by a player since 1970.

Byrd had four tackles, two interceptions and two passes defensed in the Bills' 19-16 overtime win at Arizona. His second pick of the game came in overtime, resulting in a game-winning field goal by Bills kicker Rian Lindell.

Jones tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the Ravens' 31-29 win over Dallas. He joined New England's Ellis Hobbs (Sept. 9, 2007 vs. Jets) and Randall Cobb of Green Bay (Sept. 8, 2011 vs. New Orleans) in the history books.
