The Offensive Player of the Year award has been given to Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, who led the NFL in rushing yards and tied for the lead in rushing touchdowns.
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray will not likely win the MVP award, but his best season of his career was enough to win Offensive Player of the Year honors.

He received 26 of the 50 first-place votes while Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers received 15. Murray led the NFL in rushing with 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns while adding 416 receiving yards on 57 catches.
The Cowboys offense had a fantastic season as it was the primary reason behind the team putting together an unexpected 12-4 season that included winning an NFC East title and a playoff game.
Although quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant have been a large part of the Cowboys’ success as well, Murray was viewed by many as the most valuable player on the Cowboys and even in the entire NFL by some.
