1. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos
Even if Adrian Peterson breaks Eric Dickerson’s single-season record of 2,105 rushing yards, I think I’m still going with Manning as my league MVP. He’s more than just the best player on the field this season. He’s the de facto offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach, and team mouthpiece for an 11-3 team. Entering Week 15, Denver has won nine straight and they shouldn’t lose to Cleveland or Kansas City in the team’s final two games. It’s a quarterback’s league and Denver’s got the very best one. I have no problem with Peterson winning the award, but my vote’s with The Sheriff. Anyway, that’s why there’s the Offensive Player of the Year award. 2. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
We may be witnessing the best season a running back’s ever had, in the midst of an era when it’s all about the quarterbacks. Peterson’s having a tremendous year, obviously, and if either he breaks the record or the Vikings make the playoffs (or both) — I will be just fine with him taking this one home. - Peter Schrager
