NFL legend Peyton Manning is looking for his sixth MVP Award.

It is almost that time of the year again. The face paint comes out, the tailgate parties begin and the beers flow. That’s right; the NFL season is about to kick-off and the race for this year’s MVP award is a battle within a battle. Alongside a Super Bowl Ring, the MVP award is the one thing players put their bodies on the line for week in and week out. TattsBet takes a look at some of this year’s favourites, as well as a couple of roughies.

Peyton Manning (QB)

Peyton Manning is a five-time MVP winner and a Super Bowl Champion. Winning his first MVP award back in 2003, the Denver Broncos quarterback continues to terrorise defences with his quick snaps and precision passing. At almost 40 years-old, he proves that age is no barrier.

Drew Brees is set for another big year. He has so many trophies in his cabinet, from a Super Bowl MVP to a National Football Conference MVP, but the New Orleans Saints general is yet to claim the illustrious title of the best in the business.

It appears a pattern is developing here, with quarterbacks being prime candidates for this award. But that's because the whole team relies on what they do. The Green Bay Packers are no different. Without Aaron Rogers, they would never have won the Super Bowl in 2010 and finished first in the NFC three years in a row.

Tom Brady (QB)

Yes, another quarterback makes the list, but Tom Brady just had to be on it. Since debuting back in 2000, Brady has steered the New England Patriots to three Super Bowl Championships (2001, 2003, and 2004) and earned himself two MVP awards (2007 and 2010).

Calvin Johnson

Calvin Johnson (WR)

Nicknamed “Megatron”, Calvin Johnson has become a player to fear since making his debut in 2007. Averaging over 1,300 yards per season for the Detroit Lions, it is not hard to see why.

Demaryius Thomas

He may be a roughie, but Demaryius Thomas will give the veterans a run for their money this year. He has become one of the Denver Broncos pivotal players since his debut in 2010, making over 1,400 yards in the past two seasons.
