The 2023 NFL season reached a pivotal moment as Week 6 concluded, with notable developments in the MVP race. While the MVP award traditionally gravitates towards quarterbacks, this year’s race remains intriguing.

Quarterbacks continue to dominate the conversation, with Patrick Mahomes and Tua Tagovailoa leading the pack. However, some unexpected shifts have seen Brock Purdy and Jalen Hurts gaining and losing ground.

Among the top NFL contenders post-Week 6 are the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, and Detroit Lions. Remarkably, all but one of these teams boasts an MVP candidate.

Here are the top 5 NFL MVP candidates from the first six weeks of the season:

Brock Purdy Brock Purdy, despite a setback against the Cleveland Browns, remains a strong contender. His 5-1 record, 67.5% completion rate, 1,396 passing yards, 10 touchdowns, and two rushing touchdowns make him a formidable candidate, with current MVP odds at +1000.

Jalen Hurts Jalen Hurts faced challenges with three interceptions in a loss to the New York Jets. Nevertheless, his impressive start with the Eagles, boasting 5-1, 1,542 passing yards, 253 rushing yards, and five touchdowns, keeps him in MVP contention.

Josh Allen Josh Allen, the Bills’ quarterback, maintains his MVP candidacy with a 71.7% completion rate, 4-2 record, 1,576 passing yards, and 16 total touchdowns. He consistently guides the Bills toward playoff contention.

Patrick Mahomes Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs’ quarterback, shares the highest odds for the league MVP (+350). His 5-1 record, 1,593 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and 68.9% completion rate highlight his prowess, as he aims for a third MVP and Super Bowl victory.

Tua Tagovailoa Tua Tagovailoa, like Mahomes, is a frontrunner with +350 odds. Leading the league in passing yards (1,876) and sharing the most touchdown passes (14), Tagovailoa showcases his potential. The 5-1 Miami Dolphins hold the AFC’s best record, making him a strong MVP prospect.

Additionally, three under-the-radar MVP contenders could shake up the race:

Lamar Jackson With a 4-2 record, 1,253 passing yards, five touchdowns, and 327 rushing yards, Lamar Jackson could secure a second MVP if he sustains his performance and guides the Ravens to the playoffs.

Christian McCaffrey Christian McCaffrey, a running back, offers hope for breaking a 10-year MVP drought. Scoring consistently, he’s rushed for 510 yards, with seven rushing touchdowns, and contributed in the receiving game. Despite a recent injury, his MVP chances remain alive.

Tyreek Hill Tyreek Hill, a dynamic receiver, set his sights on 2,000 receiving yards and boasts 814 yards and six touchdowns in six games. His electrifying style makes him a dark horse in the MVP race.
