It could be a close race for comeback player of the year in the NFL.
On the one hand, we have Peyton Manning, who has led the Denver Broncos into the playoffs after sitting out a year and undergoing multiple surgeries to his neck. Manning quickly regained his old form and had an excellent season at quarterback.
On the other hand, you have to consider Adrian Peterson. The Minnesota Vikings’ star running back went down with a devastating knee injury just a little over a year ago. However, Peterson returned from major surgery and came within 9 yards of breaking the all-time record for yards gained on the ground in a single season. With his spectacular effort, Peterson also helped his team make the playoffs.
However, the best comeback of all time has to be when Jesus came out of the empty tomb! That gets my vote!
