NFL MVP Race: Where Does Josh Allen Rank Among the Contenders?

Tonight, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills are hosting the New England Patriots. It’s not going to be an easy matchup as New England is read hot winning six in a row and their defense has been playing out of their mind holding opponents to under 20 points in four straight games.

But a win for Buffalo would move them to 8-4 and move them into first place in the division. That would likely fall on the shoulders of Josh Allen.

After Allen’s monster third year in the league, he’s come back to earth a little bit. His yards per game is down by five yards, his completion percentage is down, and his rushing touchdowns are down as well. Here’s how he compares in a per-game basis from this year to last year.

YearCMP%YPGTD/GINT/GY/ARatingQBR
202069.2%284.02.310.637.9107.281.7
202166.8%279.22.270.917.599.161.1

Still, even in a down year Josh Allen is a quality quarterback and finds himself very much so in the mix for MVP. He’s currently second in the race at +600 to take home the award to Tom Brady who is the favorite at +200.

Of the other contenders, Allen has the schedule in his favor. He has games against Carolina, Atlanta, and the Jets who have all struggled this year. If he has a couple more monster performances, and then looks good tonight and in the head-to-head against Tom Brady in two weeks then he is right back in the conversation to take home this award.
