Other than the Super Bowl, the NFL’s next best accomplishment is winning the league’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) award. This award obviously is given to the NFL’s best player in that season. Aaron Rodgers is the most recent winner, winning it in 2014. That was his second one in his career. Peyton Manning won the award the most, winning it 5 times! The MVP winner is almost always a quarterback, very few times will it be another offensive position, and only twice has it ever been a defensive player. Below is what I believe to be the top five candidates…
Cam Newton Cam is no doubt having the season of his career. This 6’5, 214 pound quarterback is looking for his third pro bowl appearance and his first Super Bowl appearance. He is now leading the undefeated 13-0 Panthers, to a possible bye week in the postseason. Cam AKA Superman has over 2,500 passing yards and 20 touchdowns. He also has over 430 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns. Superman can do it all.
Tom Brady If Brady wins this, this will be his third MVP award. This season, Brady lost his starting running back, his top two receivers, and his all pro tight end. Brady has still found a way to go 10-2. So far Brady has 3,912 passing yards, 31 touchdowns, and 36 receiving yards!
Antonio Brown AB has been incredible this season. A receiver has never won this award, but I believe he is well deserving of it. Brown can help guide the Steelers deep into the playoffs. So far, Brown has 93 receptions, 1,310 receiving yards, and eight total touchdowns! Brown is definitely the best receiver in the league.
Adrian Peterson Peterson has had an incredible comeback since missing all of last year due to child abuse charges. Nobody thought that Peterson would still be on the Vikings after last year, but here he is, and he’s picking up right where he left off. Peterson has already won the MVP award in 2012 and he has another great chance to win it again. He right now has 1,182 rushing yards (leading the league) and eight rushing touchdowns.
Rob Gronkowski Gronk is like the Incredible Hulk at Tight End. He’s unfortunately injured this year, but he has had a great season so far with the help of Tom Brady. Now that Gronk came back healthy soon, he may have a chance at the MVP award.
