Vote: Who is your NFL MVP?

Who's the MVP: Brady, Newton, or Palmer? (1:33)

Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless debate who the league MVP is 16 weeks through the regular season. (1:33)

The season is winding down, but the NFL MVP debate is ramping up. Well, it's been raging for a while, and as Mike Sando points out, it has featured a number of names throughout the course of the year.

Right now, it appears only a few are still standing:

- Tom Brady, whose New England Patriots are 12-3 despite a raft of injuries. Brady has a league-best 36 touchdowns and 4,636 passing yards, with only seven interceptions.

- Cam Newton, whose Carolina Panthers just suffered their first loss of the season. Newton has thrown 33 TD passes and 10 interceptions and also has rushed for eight touchdowns.

- Carson Palmer, whose Arizona Cardinals are 13-2 and have won nine straight. Palmer has tossed 34 TD passes and 10 interceptions and is fourth in the league with 4,542 yards.

... but they're not the only ones. Who's your pick?
