Here are the players most likely to be awarded NFL MVP at the end of season awards.

Jalen Hurts

Hurts is the current favorite according to the sportsbooks, and that’s no surprise considering his impressive performances already this season. The Eagles quarterback helped his side reach the Super Bowl last season, and it looks like he could once again be a driving force behind the Eagles’ as they look to reach the playoffs.

If you look up the definition of the word clutch, there’s a picture of Jalen Hurts next to it. He’s been incredibly important at securing wins for his team, and he continues to impress. Not only that, but Hurts has also performed well against the league’s best teams, proving he’s championship material. Currently, the Eagles are also the best team in the NFL, and if they keep it up, there’s no doubt that Hurts can win the NFL MVP.

Dak Prescott

Of course, even if Hurts is the favorite, the season isn’t over yet. There are plenty of other players in contention, and Prescott is one of them. The Cowboys quarterback has been a strong contender all season, and recently became the second-favorite thanks to a stellar performance against the Seattle Seahawks. Prescott was the main man in a 41-35 thriller, completing 29 of 41 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns.

The Seahawks win comes on the back of a string of great performances by Prescott. He now finishes November with a total of 16 touchdown passes. Incredibly, there are only four quarterbacks in the history of the NFL who have had a better month in terms of touchdown passes. Not only that, but Prescott’s passes have only been intercepted twice in the last six games. If he continues this form, he could well claim the NFL MVP award.

Tua Tagovailoa

The success of the Dolphins this season has been largely thanks to the brilliance of Tagovailoa. That’s not to say that he doesn’t have a good team around him, but the quarterback has been very impressive and put himself into the MVP conversation. He’s been especially adept at clutch moments, helping to drag his side to a 8-3 record so far.

With the Dolphins potentially reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2016, Tagovaliloa has an opportunity to make his mark on the NFL. In previous seasons, his offensive game never really got going, but his statistics this season have exploded. He’s also benefitted from two elite wide receivers and a very offensive-minded coach.

Final Thoughts

The MVP award is normally given to the quarterback on the league’s best team. That puts Hurts in the hot seat right now, but things could change quickly in the remaining weeks of the league. Additionally, it’s always possible for a quarterback on one of the lesser teams to outshine them, provided they perform at an elite level.
