Who Will Be the 2022 NFL MVP?

With the Super Bowl 2023 playoffs mere weeks away, odds are coming in for who the next MVP will be. The Associated Press NFL MVP award goes to the player who has made the biggest impact in the regular season. Since 1957 when Jim Brown won the very first MVP title, there have been many names added to the list of superb players, such as Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, and Aaron Rodgers. Having a player's name added to this list is a recognition of their skill and success.

We compiled a list of who currently has the best odds of winning the Super Bowl and 2022 MVP award.

Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Hurts is one of the best rushing attacks in football, and with a completion rate of 68%, his near-perfect play this season has been a contributing factor to the Eagles being in such a good position to take the Lombardi Trophy. Barring any late-season injuries, the MVP award is most likely to go to this star player, making him the first MVP from Philadelphia.

Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Although the Bengals stopped the Chief's recent run, Mahomes still has the most touchdown passes and passing yards in the league. Mahomes threw 3 touchdown passes, but also 3 interceptions against the Broncos, the most since 2020, which might account for him slipping slightly in the rankings for MVP.

Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

During Week 13, Burrow came into contention for the MVP title after a win over the Chiefs, where he threw 286 yards and 2 touchdown passes, as well as recording his second-highest season completion percentage of 80.6%.

Since the fifth week, Burrow has launched 17 touchdown passes and only conceded 4 interceptions in that time. With the Bengals on a 5-game streak, they have the opportunity to grab a division title. With a handful of matches, Burrow still has a chance to put himself in place for the MVP title.

Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

The Bills and Josh Allen claimed a victory over the Jets in Week 14 during poor weather. With five straight drives, the Bills opened up the game with the help of Allen at quarterback, throwing a season-low of 147 yards.

Allen has made some serious contributions to the numbers that Stefon Diggs is claiming, who is third for touchdowns, fourth in receiving yards, and third in receptions. The Bills have a good opportunity to get back ahead when they come up against the Dolphins at home.

Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa's chances have been left in ruins after back-to-back losses against the Chargers and the 49ers. In his first nine games, Tua had a quarterback rating of 83 and a completion percentage of 70%, with an average of 9.0 yards per attempt. However, in his last two matches for the Miami Dolphins, his stats have seriously taken a dive, now sitting at a QBR of 22, a completion percentage at 46%, and yards per attempt at 7.2.

Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings

Justin Jefferson, the current leader in receiving yards, is looking to become the first 2,000-yard receiver in the history of the League. Jefferson set the record for the Vikings when he caught 11 passes for 223 yards when they lost to Detroit. He has had a huge impact on the Vikings, reaching a 10-3 record, but unfortunately, his touchdowns just do not match up to the other MVP candidates.

Geno Smith, Seattle Seahawks

Smith shot into the spotlight as a candidate for the MVP title in Week 13 when he was responsible for a game-winning drive against the Rams. This was Smith's first game-winning drive since he played for the Jets in 2014. Currently, he is the favorite for the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year award and still remains a viable option for MVP.
