With the 2020-2021 NFL season on the horizon, ESPN put out a list of MVP favorites.
As you would expect, Patrick Mahomes came out as the top favorite with Lamar Jackson following closely behind. Along with these players, you have Christian McCaffery at 40-1, Dak Prescott at 9-1, and Tompa Bay Brady at 16-1.
But all of these names are no surprise.
Like, if this were “Family Feud,” Steve Harvey would say, “Who are the best NFL MVP candidates?” And then, the survey would show all of those names. But life is not about favorites; it is about underdogs.
