Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was the leading vote-getter among non-quarterbacks in the NFL's fan balloting for the Pro Bowl.

Peterson received 948,410 votes, putting him behind New England's Tom Brady (1,877,079); Philadelphia's Michael Vick (1,522,437); Indianapolis' Peyton Manning (1,130,399); San Diego's Philip Rivers (1,039,618); and New Orleans' Drew Brees (971,731).

The AFC and NFC All-Star teams are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches with each group’s vote counting one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the AFC and NFC in the Pro Bowl.

Vikings players and coaches are due to vote on Thursday and the teams will be announced at 6 p.m. Tuesday on the NFL Network. The game will be played at 6 p.m. on Jan. 30 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

The only other Vikings player who led in voting at his position was Heath Farwell, who received 162,553 votes as a special-teams player.
