As you have seen in the picture and the title, today's player is Vikings' running back, Adrian Peterson.

Although he was on the MVP list for in the voting, he did not win. Peyton Manning did and won it by a ton of votes.

Adrian Peterson, last year, had almost 1,800 rushing yards. He also had 21 receptions for 125 yards. Man, this guy is a future Hall-of-Famer for what we have seen so far in this article.

It may be to early to tell, though.

The Vikings, with the help of Peterson, had a 10-6 record. Unfortunately, they lost in the playoffs to the Eagles.

Heck, Adrian Peterson had one of the best games of his career. He had a total of 80 yards including a 49-yard-touchdown. But you still have to consider that was a playoff game.

See why? He should have gotten more votes.
