Montana, Manning, Favre, Unitas, Mahomes, Brees, Lamar Jackson, or any other quarterback in NFL history, has done what Russell Wilson has already done this year.
Patrick Mahomes is the bookmakers' favorite to win a second MVP award in three seasons, with Lamar Jackson second-favorite to defend the title.
On Tuesday, former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall was discussing the NFL MVP award and stated that if Baltimore Ravens' quarterback Lamar Jackson was removed from the conversation, Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings would be the MVP.
After leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 45-6 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, Lamar Jackson remains the NFL MVP favorite with undying support from his teammate Mark Ingram.
"We think it's only fair to reward all of our clients who had the foresight to place their bets on the right long shot," PointsBet CEO Johnny Aitken said.
Quarterbacks like Wilson and Jackson continue to dominate the top of the pack, but a few running backs have performed well enough to keep their name in the conversation.
"When's the last time we saw a white running back in the MVP contention?" Sharpe said on his show "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed."
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is currently the fronrunner in several sportsbooks, though Seattle Seahawk Russell Wilson is not far behind.
Patrick Mahomes could become the first player since Peyton Manning in 2009 to win back-to-back MVP awards.
Brees has averaged just under 180 passing yards over the last three games as the Saints have struggled offensively.
James Conner's figures at this stage of the season are better than Bell's a year ago.
