1 / Aaron Rodgers (Packers) (+1) – 3689 yards at 68% – 33 TD, 4 INT
While still embarrassed by his toe injury, Aaron Rodgers continues to dazzle game after game. Against the Ravens, the Packers did not go far from the correctional but the defense did the job late in the game and the quarterback threw 3 touchdowns (24/34). A brilliant new performance that allows him to pass Tom Brady in our virtual ranking, two games to go to the end of the regular season, as Green Bay rushes towards the best record in the League (12v – 3d).
2 / Tom Brady (Buccaneers) (-1) – 4580 yards at 66.8% – 37 TD, 11 INT
To win a fourth trophy, Tom Brady will now have to whip. Not that number 12 was bad against Carolina (1 touchdown), but Aaron Rodgers did better on his side. In the distance fight between the two men, the Packers pitcher is now the favorite of the bookmakers to glean the reward. A sign that does not deceive.
3 / Jonathan Taylor (Colts) (=) – 1626 yards – 17 TD, 3 Fumbles
No touchdown for the Indianapolis runner this week! This had not happened since the 3rd week and at the time, Jonathan Taylor had not yet scored any TD in this season. Against the Cardinals, the running back weighed but less than usual (108 yards in 27 races) in a meeting where Carson Wentz came out of the woods. If he wants to get the MVP trophy, Taylor will have to do well in the last two games of the Colts, against Las Vegas and Jacksonville. It is in its strings.
4 / Patrick Mahomes (Chiefs) (+1) – 4310 yards at 66.1% – 33 TD, 13 INT
Like his team, officially AFC West champion for the sixth year in a row (a record!), Patrick Mahomes continues to gain strength. Sunday, it was the Steelers who took it for their grades. Absolutely royal (23/30, 258 yards, 3 TD), the MVP 2018 confirms that he returns to the top at the best of times. If it will be too short to pocket a second individual trophy, the Kansas City pitcher is already making an appointment for the Playoffs.
5 / Matthew Stafford (Rams) (-1) – 4339 yards à 66,9% – 36 TD, 13 INT
With three interceptions against the Vikings, Matthew Stafford (21/37, 1 touchdown) had a very mixed evening on Sunday. And if Los Angeles still defeated Minnesota, the Californian franchise does not really owe it to its pitcher, who fell back into his mid-season pitfalls. This is why he loses a place in favor of Patrick Mahomes.
