With one stellar half on Sunday, Peyton Manning set the NFL single-season record for yards passing. He finished with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdown passes - both league marks.

LeSean McCoy had the rushing title wrapped up before the Eagles beat the Cowboys on Sunday night for the NFC East title and a spot in the postseason. Coming into the game, McCoy had a 189-yard lead on Jamal Charles, who sat out the Chiefs' regular-season finale.

McCoy ran for 131 yards in a 24-22 victory and finished with 1,607, becoming the first Philadelphia running back to win the rushing title since Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren in 1949.

Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon finished with an NFL-high 1,646 yards receiving, a first for the franchise. Washington's Pierre Garcon led with 113 receptions.

Indianapolis' Robert Mathis finished with 19 1/2 sacks, a half-sack more than Robert Quinn of St. Louis. Mathis joined Dwight Freeney as Indy's only sacks champions.
