Peyton Manning leads Pro Bowl voting

The Broncos QB is ahead of his old rival in New England.

Peyton Manning may be playing on a new team in a new city, but he's still as popular as ever among NFL fans.

After sitting out last season with neck issues, Manning has picked up right where he left off in Denver, completing 69.7% of his passes for 2,705 yards, 21 TDs and 6 INTs while leading the Broncos to a 6-3 record.

As a result, he's now on top of the early voting for the 2013 Pro Bowl among AFC QBs.

He has the highest QB rating in the conference at 108.3, but there are several big names right behind him, including Tom Brady (100.1) and Ben Roethlisberger (100.0).

Andrew Luck, the prized rookie QB the Colts replaced Manning with, has a respectable 79.1 QB rating in his first year as a starter, but he's probably a few years away from challenging Brady, Manning and Roethlisberger in the AFC's QB hierarchy.
