Joe Montana Division
4. Drew Brees
The Saints are terrible, but Brees continues to be a beacon of shining light in New Orleans. Brees is leading the NFL with 4,559 yards while completing more than 71 percent of his throws. Incredible.
3. Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers has continued to move the Packers towards an improbable NFC North title. After a slow start, Rodgers has amassed 3,781 yards with 32 touchdowns against seven interceptions. If Green Bay gets in the playoffs, look out.
2. Matt Ryan
Ryan is the absolute correct choice for MVP. He’s second in the league with 4,336 yards with an NFL-best 9.33 yards per attempt. Ryan also has 32 scores and seven picks, showcasing his brilliance. If he doesn’t win MVP this year, there’s no hope.
1. Tom Brady
While Ryan is the MVP, Brady is quite possibly the greatest quarterback in NFL history. He’s in a league of his own, and is only second in the MVP race because he sat out the first four games of the campaign.
