Thankfully, football writers around the country did what is right for business and voted Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson as the NFL’s Most Valuable Player on Saturday night at the NFL Honors program hosted by Alec Baldwin.
Peterson defeated Peyton Manning, J.J. Watt, Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady to win his first MVP award.
Manning was considered Peterson’s chief competition. However, Peterson’s return from a torn ACL to rush for 2,000 yards and leading the Vikings into the playoffs proved to be too much for voters to ignore.
Sorry Peyton, maybe next year.
