Here are the top players to watch for NFL MVP:
QB Josh Allen, Bills and QB Jalen Hurts, Eagles
Both watched from home last weekend with both of their Super Bowl contending teams on a bye in Week 7.
So it’s not as if their chances dropped by any means.
Allen ranks second in Expected Points Added per dropback (via TruMedia) at 0.30 and third in passer rating at 109.1.
Hurts ranks fourth in EPA per dropback at 0.16 and sixth in passer rating at 98.4.
If the wins continue to pile up for both players, the hype surrounding their claims for MVP will too. The Bills will host the Packers, while the Eagles host the Steelers.
