We are now 4 weeks into the 2020 NFL season!  Through 4 weeks of play, we’ve seen some outstanding performances from the best in the league.  It’s never too early to start talking about MVP candidates.

As of now, there is pretty much a consensus of 4 players in the running for MVP with two main frontrunners.  The 4 players in the running so far are Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson, Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and Buffalo Bills Quarterback Josh Allen.  All of these guys are having amazing seasons so far as each of them has yet to lose a game this season.  Although they are all having great seasons, two of them have separated themselves from the other two.

The first of the two front runners is Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.  As mentioned earlier he is having an unbelievable year leading his team to a record of 4-0 so far.  Russ is leading the league in touchdowns with 16 on a great 75.2% completion percentage.  He also only has 2 interceptions.  With sophomore receiver DK Metcalf and veteran receiver Tyler Lockett, Russ has some great weapons to throw to and he is doing so very well.  Russ has never received an MVP vote in his career despite going to the Super Bowl twice and being a 6-time Pro-Bowler.

The second of the two front runners is Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.  He has also led his team to a record of 4-0.  He is second in the league in touchdowns with 13 and has a completion rating of 70.2%.  He also has not thrown an interception yet this year.  Rodgers is also a Super Bowl Champion and has won 2 MVPs in his career so far.

Overall, it’s a tight race for MVP in the NFL.  There is a long way to go and the next 13 weeks will determine who comes out on top.
