SportsNation casts vote for Peterson

Image

ESPN asked. America answered.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson received a majority of the fans’ NFL MVP vote (51 percent), beating Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (33 percent) and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (10 percent) by a wide margin.

It’s always revealing to see fan biases by state. Peterson won most states across the country while Brady predictably swept New England. Manning understandably won Colorado, Wyoming and Utah but also Indiana (where he led the Colts) and Tennessee (where he led the Volunteers).

“Someone else” received 6 percent of the vote, with certain states polling higher.

  • Wisconsin, 17 percent: Presumably for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers
  • Georgia, 16 percent: Presumably for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan
  • Washington, 11 percent: Presumably for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch
  • Texas, 10 percent: Presumably for Texans defensive end J.J. Watt

And in unrelated news, MVP voter Peter King has narrowed his ballot.

  1. I think that Matt Ryan should be MVP in the since he’s thrown for 500 yards a Falcons and maybe a NFL record. I’m a Bears fan🐻 who truly believe this is a SuperBowl team.
