Who is the offensive MVP of the National Football League for the 2012 regular season? When it comes down to it, the debate should only include two and perhaps three guys. The vote will be between Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson and for discussion purposes, we'll allow Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson into the conversation.
Manning recovered from serious neck surgery, switched teams and now has his Broncos riding high and firing on all cylinders. With ten wins in a row, Denver might be the best team in the league right now and currently holds the #2 playoff seed with one more game remaining in the regular season.
Peterson has 1,898 yards and needs only 102 to reach the 2,000 barrier and 208 yards to break Eric Dickerson's rushing yardage record. The Vikings host the Green Bay Packers this weekend, and the last time they played, Adrian ran all over the Pack for 210 yards.
Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice's single-season receiving yards record last week and can add to it this week. "Megatron" is virtually un-coverable and has a slew of other receiving records under his belt.
