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.
