MVP watch: week 15

If you saw what happened in Chicago this past Sunday, you know that the 2010 NFL MVP is Tom Brady, and it’s not close.

I won’t bore you with analysis, because frankly, the MVP picture is pretty clear. Right now, the real race is for runner-up.

Still, there is a chance the other candidates could win the Offensive Player of the Year award, which is nothing to sneeze at.
