2. Drew Brees, QB (New Orleans Saints) – (8-2) Brees and the Saints defeated the 49ers at home. He is on pace for his third straight 5,000 yard passing season, and he has the Saints back in contention for a championship. LW # 2
1. Peyton Manning, QB - (Denver Broncos) – (9-1) Manning led the Broncos to a big win over the Chiefs. He is on pace for nearly 6,000 yards passing and 60 TD’s. More importantly, the Broncos have one of the best records on the NFL. LW # 1
The Washington Redskins Alfred Morris would be the closest thing they have to an MVP candidate right now, but he needs the team to pile up some wins. Morris is third in the league in rushing with 918 yards.
