At the midway point of the NFL's 2009-10 season, several players are making their cases for the Most Valuable Player award.
The roster of MVP contenders includes some pretty familiar names -- your Breeses, your Bradys, your Mannings -- but Cedric Benson may be a darkhorse candidate with the surprising 6-2 Bengals. Benson brought stability and a power rushing attack to a sometimes-inconsistent offense, helping put the Bengals in a good playoff position halfway through the season. Brett Favre also makes his return to the list; is there any doubt now that the Vikings would be 7-1 with Tarvaris Jackson or Gus Frerotte at the helm?
