Few things stopped Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson throughout the 2012-13 season, and few could stop him again at the 2013 NFL Honors Awards night either.
The Vikings running back ended the speculation about who would win the Most Valuable Player Award—taking home the title with 30.5 votes from a possible 50.
The MVP was always going to either Peterson or Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who had a remarkable first season with his new club after returning from neck surgery. The former Indianapolis Colts star picked up 19.5 votes, but was still well behind Peterson in the award race, with no other players picking up points from the voting process.
