With only three games left to end the regular season, the NFL MVP Picture is now much clearer that before December began. Some of the guys, like Matt Ryan, have fallen off just a bit and some guys like Stafford are now elevated. Let’s see which three guys are leading the race as of right now.
Honorable mentions: Ezekiel Elliot, Matthew Stafford.
3) DAK PRESCOTT, Dallas Cowboys – There is no doubt about the fact that Prescott had an amazing rookie season so far. The fact that he is in this conversation at all speaks for itself. He has dropped off just a bit in these last couple of games, but he could easily rise on this list if the finishes the season strong.
2) DEREK CARR, Oakland Raiders – Oakland’s quarterback has led his team to an amazing record so far, but he needs to finish the year on a high note. His team lost last week in a crucial divisional game and that is probably the reason that he is not at the top of this list.
1) TOM BRADY, New England Patriots – Even though he missed four games, Tom Brady has been better than everybody on this list. If Dak Prescott and Derek Carr finish the season strong, one of those guys will pick up this award. But, as of right now, Brady has just had a more impressive year with 22 TDs and 2 INTs.
