After a masterful outing in the postseason against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, all eyes are on The Bills' superstar quarterback Josh Allen to pick up right where he left off and lead the Bills to the promised land. Allen lead the team to an impressive 11-6 record last season, but if he shows the promise he did in the postseason and keeps his interceptions low, there is no doubt that Allen should be a frontrunner for NFL MVP.
Patrick Mahomes II
Arguably the greatest quarterback in the entire NFL, Patrick Mahomes is always a threat to win the NFL MVP, and after a dismal postseason by his standards, we can expect a revenge tour for Mahomes the likes of which have never been seen. Losing star wide receiver Tyreek Hill makes the road much more difficult, but if Mahomes can still put up his inhuman numbers without Hill, he will undoubtedly win his 2nd MVP.
The Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback Jalen Hurts has continued to show slow and steady growth as a player, but he could very well take the jump that many of his fans suspect him to this year. At 24 years of age, Hurts is a long shot for this award, however, if he can lead what many consider to be a lackluster team to huge success, all eyes will be on Hurts and he will undoubtedly get all the credit for the team's success.

Derrick Henry has proved that he is one of the best and most productive running backs in the entire NFL over the last 5 seasons. Always at the top or at the very least near the top of the league in rushing, Henry may be entering the twilight of his career, but many suspects he will have one last hurrah left in him. With the Titans losing faith in Ryan Tannehill and A.J. Brown gone from the team, Henry will need to carry the team on his back, which could in turn achieve him his MVP.
Cincinnati Bengals superstar Joe Burrow made a resounding statement in the 2022 postseason that he has indeed arrived and is going to be a problem in the NFL for decades to come. Burrow was already the highest-rated quarterback last season, and with the Bengals patching holes in the team, the Bengals and Burrow are looking to make a statement, that they are the best team in the NFL.

The man that many view as the best wide receiver in all of football, newly acquired Las Vegas Raider Davante Adams is out to prove that Aaron Rodgers needed him, not the other way around. If he is able to bring the success he brought to the Packers to the Raiders, all while continuing to put up the incredible numbers he had last season, Adams will be a player to keep an eye on for the NFL MVP.
