NFL MVP Candidates Heading into the end of the Regular Season

Aiden Fiaschetti 


With only 1 month left in the 2023 NFL season, the MVP race continues to be a rollercoaster as the season heads to week 15. We have seen many different players top the ranks, and players fall from holding a top spot in the MVP conversation but with the regular season coming to a close here are the top 5 as of right now. 

  1.  Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys 

       After an electric Sunday night football win over league powerhouse Philadelphia Eagles Dak Prescott takes our number 1 spot. Prescott has been on an absolute tear since the Cowboys bye in week 7, averaging 310 yards a game and has thrown for 20 touchdowns in that span. Dak has led the Cowboys to a 10-3 record it’s hard to argue against Dak not leading the race as of now after his recency.  

  1.  Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers 

       Brock Purdy has been leading the league in efficiency the whole season and it shows, he led the 49ers to a 28-16 win over the Seahawks in week 14 and had his 7th consecutive game completing at least 70% of his passes. He threw an interception for only the 2nd time in the last 5 games but had a season-high in yards with 368 keeps him in the running just behind Prescott after his Sunday night heroics. 

  1. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens 

       Lamar Jackson had nearly 400 yards of offense while leading the Ravens to a 37-31 overtime win against the Rams. Jackson went 24-of-43 with 316 yards passing and 3 touchdowns, he topped that off with 70 yards on the ground. The Ravens have won 3 straight for the second time this season and have been the first team to reach 10 wins in the AFC.

  1. Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins

       Tyreek Hill is the only non-quarterback on this list and he is here for a reason, he leads the league in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns and has been tearing up the league this season. Hill said before the season that he is going to try and break the receiving yards record with 2,000 or more, and he is on pace to do just that. If Tyreek Hill could break this record he could definitely climb up the MVP ranks.

  1. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

       Jalen Hurts has been in the conversation for the whole season but after two disappointing losses to the NFC’s top two teams in the 49ers and Cowboys, Hurts drops down to number 5. Hurts threw for only 197 yards and failed to throw a touchdown on 18-for-27 passing against the Cowboys in week 14, but with a seemingly easy schedule to finish out the season Hurts could make a case for why he should be considered for this award as the season closes.
