A wide receiver has never won the NFL MVP. Justin Jefferson want to be the first. Jefferson is having a career year in 2022 with 1,756 yards received in 123 catches, both leading the NFL. He also had eight touchdowns during the season, but most importantly the Vikings are leading 12-3 and still have a chance to be the NFC’s No. Kirk Cousins has played well for most of the season, but it would be hard to argue that anyone but Jefferson is Minnesota’s best player. His case is definitely strong, but don’t take it from us; just ask the man himself. “Given the type of season I’m going through, I feel like it’s a necessary conversation for me to be the MVP.” The last non-QB to win the MVP? Another Viking named Adrian Peterson. Would Jefferson join him on that list? Keep stable.
Which brings us to today’s test. Much is known about Jefferson coming close to Calvin Johnson’s record for most yards in a single season, but he also has an outside opportunity to break the single-season record. So with that in mind, how many NFL players can you name the most receptions in a season in five minutes?
