The Strongest MVP Candidates as of NFL Week 6

On October 14, 2015, in Sporting News, by Buddy TB

NFLAs we enter week 6 in the NFL and with all games from this past five weeks of Football is long enough to start noticing trends from both teams and players in the league. The MVP title is not announced until a day before the Super Bowl, but that does not mean that we do not have our own candidates to win the individual player prize in the league. Here our proposal of who should be the 2015 NFL MVP.

Carson Palmer – QB – Cardinals

The Cardinals offense is an almost unstoppable machine and much of the success is due to Palmer, who gives an edge to this team. 1 out 11 passes completed end in a TD, and singlehandedly has undertaken Larry Fitzgerald’s revival. If we go into the definition of MVP, the Cardinals know first hand what it’s like to not have Palmer.

Josh Norman – CB – Panthers

The only defensive player on this list and so far a real revelation. Norman has been the most effective cornerback in the NFL. With 4 interceptions (including two returned for a TD) and in general has been very effective erasing the first WR of the teams they face. If this trend continues the player could enter the conversation about the best CBs in NFL history.

 

Aaron Rodgers – QB – Packers

True, against the Rams he was only “mortal”, but Rodgers is winning and throwing better than any other QB in the league. Each game has 5 or 6 passes that show us he is at a higher level and his team going undefeated (besides scoring with any WR that is available). Rodgers has been the best QB in the NFL for the past couple of years and may as well be the best in years to come.

Devonta Freeman – RB – Falcons

The definition of offensive weapon. Devonta Freeman is one of the most versatile players and has become one of the most important assets for the Falcons. League leader with 645 combined yards (405 rushing and 240 on 10 receptions). If we add to that 8 total TD (no one has more than 5) we can see his value to Atlanta.

Tom Brady – QB – Patriots

There is no other way to say it, the Patriots QB is playing perfectly. Has completed 72.5% of his passes, has 11 TD against 0 interceptions, runs one of the most lethal offensive in the league and is 38 years old but plays like a 27 year old. Rumors about the end of Brady’s career are widely exaggerated.
