Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is voted the best player in the NFL in the annual 'Top 100' list.

Peyton Manning has been named the NFL's best player in the annual Top 100 countdown.

The list, which is in its fourth season, is compiled by NFL Network from votes by the league's players.

The Denver Broncos quarterback, who was also named the 2013 MVP, said: "I feel like I'm in the second chapter of my football career, obviously changing teams, changing offensive systems, coaches, different coordinators, different receivers I'm throwing against, it's been a major adjustment.

"I thought I was better in 2013 certainly than I was in 2012. I certainly felt more comfortable in the Broncos offense last year compared to my first year, hopefully can be even more comfortable, can be more on the same page with our receivers this year."

Manning passed for 5,477 yards and threw 55 touchdowns during the 2013 season before the team lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
