Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning are the obvious names that pop up when the words "MVP" and "NFL" and "2012" are mentioned in the same sentence. But not every team MVP this season was quite as obvious.

Sure, we could have gone the easy route and just listed quarterbacks, but where's the fun in that? Besides, this will be the last list you'd expect to see a Jets quarterback -- or is it?
