During the last three seasons, there always seems to be a good chance that Justin Jefferson is going to be the subject of some of the most notable Minnesota Vikings news, and on Thursday, this was the case.

Jefferson was named the 2022 AP Offensive Player of the Year on Thursday evening at this season’s annual NFL Honors ceremony.

In addition to his Offensive Player of the Year award, the Vikings wide receiver was also the recipient of the Next Gen Stats Moment of the Year award for his insane 4th-and-18 catch in Minnesota’s Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills.
