Each player had a remarkable regular season that merits him receiving the honor of being one of the 2022 NFL MVP finalists, according to the Associated Press. Let’s briefly examine what each player accomplished to earn himself a position on this prestigious list.
2022 NFL MVP Finalists
Josh Allen (Quarterback, Buffalo Bills)
According to Pro Football Reference, Josh Allen finished the regular season with these accomplishments: completed 63.3% of his passes, had 4,283 passing yards, averaged 7.6 yards per passing attempt, delivered 35 touchdowns, and threw 14 interceptions.
Joe Burrow (Quarterback, Cincinnati Bengals)
According to Pro Football Reference, Joe Burrow finished the regular season with these accomplishments: completed 68.3% of his passes, produced 4,475 passing yards, averaged 7.4 yards per passing attempt, had 35 passing touchdowns, and threw 12 interceptions.
On Sunday, January 29, 2023, Burrow will lead his Cincinnati Bengals against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to determine who will win the AFC Championship and represent the AFC in Super Bowl LVII. Burrow enters the AFC Championship game with undeniable confidence.
Jalen Hurts (Quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles)
According to Pro Football Reference, Jalen Hurts finished the regular season with these accomplishments: completed 66.5% of his passes, amassed 3,701 passing yards, averaged eight yards per passing attempt, delivered 22 passing touchdowns, and threw six interceptions. Along with Patrick Mahomes and Justin Jefferson, he is a finalist for the 2022 Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year.
In the 15 games Hurts played, he lost only one.
On Sunday, January 29, 2023, Jalen Hurts will lead his Philadelphia Eagles against the San Francisco 49ers to resolve who will win the NFC Championship and represent the NFC in Super Bowl LVII.
Justin Jefferson (Wide Receiver, Minnesota Vikings)
According to Pro Football Reference, Justin Jefferson finished the regular season with these accomplishments: 128 receptions, 1,809 receiving yards, 14.1 yards per reception, and eight touchdown receptions.
Jefferson led the NFL in receiving with 1,809 yards and yards per touch (13.9 yards).
Patrick Mahomes (Quarterback, Kansas City Chiefs)
According to Pro Football Reference, Patrick Mahomes finished the regular season with these accomplishments: completed 67.1% of his passes, amassed 5,250 passing yards, averaged 8.1 yards per passing attempt, delivered 41 touchdown passes, and threw 12 interceptions. As mentioned, he will lead his Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals to resolve who will represent the AFC in Super Bowl LVII.
Fans must stay updated about whether Mahomes’ injury will impact his availability for the AFC Championship game.
Patrick Mahomes led the NFL in passing yards with 5,250, passing touchdowns with 41, passing yards per game with 308.8, passing touchdown percentage (6.3%, along with Tagovailoa), QBR (77.7), and total offense with 5,420 yards.
Because Patrick Mahomes led the league in more categories than Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Jalen Hurts, and Justin Jefferson, many people see him as the frontrunner to win the Associated Press 2022 MVP. With Mahomes having the most passing yards, passing touchdowns, passing yards per game, total offense yards, and the highest passing touchdown percentage and QBR, these accomplishments give him a statistically more impressive resume than the other 2022 MVP finalists.
NFL fans are eager to see which one of these Associated Press 2022 NFL MVP finalists will earn the Most Valuable Player designation. If Mahomes does not win the MVP, many people will argue that it is a travesty of justice.
A case can be made for each of the 2022 NFL MVP finalists to win the MVP. The final decision will be an interesting one—that’s for sure.
