Offensive MVP will come down to Peyton Manning or Adrian Peterson

Manning may win this award.

We're back with another question in our Gillette 'No Debate' series and it's one that you're going to hear a lot of disagreement on over the next couple weeks -- who is this year's offensive MVP?

For the KC Chiefs, we laugh because we have never heard of this silly thing you call offense.

For the rest of the NFL world, the decision is probably coming down to Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson. At least that's the way it broke down in the SB Nation NFL awards. Manning received 12 first place votes for MVP while AP had just eight. But in the offensive player of the year category AP received 21 first place votes to Manning's one.

It's cliche but isn't the quarterback almost always more important? It's tough to base any argument against AP but I think Manning would make the greater impact if placed on any offense in the NFL. The Broncos are arguably the best team in the AFC because of him. The Vikings are holding onto the sixth seed right now.

Is Peyton Manning the MVP this year?
