With one stellar half, 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.

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 19½ sacks, a half-sack more than Robert Quinn of St. Louis. Mathis joined Dwight Freeney as Indy's only sacks champions.
