Peterson MVP, Carter to HOF


(WXOW) - The Vikings may find themselves once again on the outside looking in with regard to Sunday's Super Bowl, but they did have reasons to cheer on Saturday.

Vikes RB Adrian Peterson, nicknamed "A.D." can now call himself "MVP" Peterson's nearly 2,100 yard season netted him the NFL's top individual honor just a year removed from ACL surgery.

Peterson beat out Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in the Associated Press vote.

More reason to cheer came thanks to the Hall of Fame inductions. Legendary Vikings WR turned ESPN analyst Cris Carter will be immortalized in Canton as part of the 2013 Hall of Fame class.

Carter joined Bill Parcells, Warren Sapp, Larry Allen and Jonathan Ogden as this years' inductees. Also former Packer Dave Robinson will go into the Hall as a senior inductee. Robinson becomes the 22-nd packer elected to the NFL Hall of Fame.
