Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could well win NFL MVP honors in less than a week.
But the Vikings already have another MVP on their roster.
TE Kyle Rudolph took home Pro Bowl MVP honors on Sunday night after hauling in 5 receptions for 122 yards and 1 TD. It was the first Pro Bowl appearance in the 2-year pro’s career, and he came ready to play. The majority of Rudolph’s contributions came early in the game as the NFC built an insurmountable lead. Rudolph’s 3-yard TD grab from NY Giants QB Eli Manning came late in the 2nd quarter and gave the NFC a 31-14 lead at halftime. Also, Rudolph’s 122 receiving yards was a game high.
In the regular season, Rudolph had 9 TDs, which was tied for 1st (Jimmy Graham) in the NFC and tied for 2nd in the NFL (Rob Gronkowski).
