Rank 'Em: NFL MVP Candidates

Created: December 15, 2009, 6:23 PM

Will Chris Johnson run to the top of your MVP list?

How do you size up the NFL MVP race?

Can anyone stop Chris Johnson? Another failed attempt by the Rams on Sunday gave the star RB 117 yards rushing and three TDs, continuing to strengthen his case for MVP of the league. But despite Johnson's monster season, is Drew Brees having a more electrifying one? With a 112.3 passer rating and a 13-0 record, the Big Breesy has been making a pretty solid case for himself lately.
