    Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been named as the NFL’s most valuable player.

    Peterson also earned the offensive player of the year award Saturday night. Peterson is the third Vikings player to win the MVP award joining quarterback defensive tackle Alan Page (1971) and quarterback Fran Tarkenton (1975).

    Peyton Manning’s historic comeback yields Comeback Player of Year award

    For the first time ever, the two strongest candidates for league MVP also are the two strongest candidates for Comeback Player of the Year.
    The latter has gone to Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
    Manning beats out Vikings running back Adrian Peterson; both players arguably had the best two comeback seasons of all time. Manning missed a full season due to multiple neck surgeries. Peterson torn his ACL and MCL in Week 16 of the 2011 season.

    -------------------------------------------

    Forced to take over control of the Indianapolis Colts mid-season as head coach Chuck Pagano was hospitalized with leukemia, offensive coordinator Bruce Arians took the helm and guided the Colts to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth.
    On Saturday, Arians was named NFL coach of the year.

    J.J. Watt nearly unanimous as the NFL’s defensive player of the year

    After a dominant season with the Houston Texans, J.J. Watt has been named the NFL’s defensive player of the year.

    The 50-member Associated Press panel that votes on NFL awards gave Watt the defensive player of the year honor almost unanimously: Watt got 49 votes, while Denver outside linebacker Von Miller got one.

    AD's story is the best comeback since McGwire returned from injury to hit 70 home runs.

    Oh wait...

    AD Peterson has always been a supreme athlete so I doubt seriously he used any performance enhancements to get back on the field...

    It's ROY voting not a statement on their entire careers.
