But is a lesser performance that matters more for the W/L suddenly a better performance than an outstanding one because the rest of the team is crap? How many times has a player rushed for over an eleven yard per carry average and 100+ yards? Sure, it's probably happened before. Not as often as runners get 154 yards in a game. What Lynch did was a few yards shy of that, and with us giving Turbin 20 of the main running carries.
Absolutely THIS...Peterson has my support for current NFL MVP, but in this particular week, the nod has to go to Lynch. This vote isn't about who was more important to their team, this weekly award is about who put up the best performance for this particular week. Lynch put up the best performance this week, hands down. Give Peterson his props, and I do hope he continues on his path and wins MVP, but Lynch deserves to be Ground player of the week
