FAST FACTS

Players voted overwhelmingly to put the ball in a quarterback's hands, as seven of the top 10 vote getters (and 10 of the top 15) play QB. Peterson was the only ballcarrier to pick up more than four votes, and Lions DT Ndamukong Suh (4%) was the only defensive player to crack the top 10. In a Facebook poll online, QBs also led the way, with Rodgers (47%) topping Brady (19%)—though Suh finished third with 17%.
