Super Bowl LVI MVP Predictions

1) Matthew Stafford

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6’ 3”, 220 pounds

Age: 33

NFL Team: Los Angeles Rams

College: Georgia

2021 Stats Line (17 games): Completed 404-of-601 for 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns with 17 interceptions with a completion percentage of 67.2.

It was a risky offseason move for the Rams front office to trade their QB Jared Goff for the Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford, but it has paid off and then some as this 13-year NFL veteran finally gets to play in the Big Game, his main targets now Cooper Kupp (see below) and Odell Beckham Jr., a chance to prove that Stafford is a true winner.

2) Joe Burrow +225

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6’ 4”, 221 pounds

Age: 25

NFL Team: Cincinnati Bengals

College: LSU

2021 Stats Line (16 games): Completed 366-of-520 for 4,611 yards and 34 touchdowns with 14 interceptions with a league-leading completion percentage of 70.4.

What an addition to HC Zac Taylor’s team QB Joe Burrow has been, a natural leader with a cannon arm who is not afraid to lead his team to places they have never been before, like the Super Bowl since 1988 when they lost to the Niners, and now Burrow and his surgically repaired knee get to maybe earn the Bengals’ first Lombardi Trophy.

3) Cooper Kupp +600

Position: Wide receiver

Size: 6’ 2”, 208 pounds

Age: 28

NFL Team: Los Angeles Rams

College: East. Washington

2021 Stats Line (17 games): Caught a league-leading 145 passes off 191 targets for a league leading 1,947 total receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, plus 4 carries for 18 yards, the receiving triple-crown winner for 2021.

Kupp, a fifth-year receiver, is the answer to QB Matthew Stafford’s passing prayers, this decent-sized playmaker able to run crisp routes and get open in zone or man-to-man coverage, with hands soft enough to catch most balls thrown his way and the kind of speed and quickness that makes him tough to tackle in the open field.

4) Aaron Donald +1600

Position: Defensive tackle

Size: 6’ 1”, 280 pounds

Age: 30

NFL Team: Los Angeles Rams

College: Pittsburgh

2021 Stats Line (17 games): 12.5 sacks, 25 quarterback hits, 4 passes defended, 4 forced fumbles, and 84 total tackles with 19 of those for a loss.

Arguably the best overall player in the league once again, perennial All-Pro DT Aaron Donald is one of the scariest NFL pass rushers now playing, his size, speed, and never-dying engine seem to put him in a position to take a lot of opposing hurlers down, his 12.5 regular season sacks tied for seventh most in the league.

5) Ja’Marr Chase +1800

Position: Wide Receiver

Size: 6’ 1”, 200 pounds

Age: 21

NFL Team: Cincinnati Bengals

College: LSU

2021 Stats Line (17 games): Caught 81 passes off 128 targets for 1,455 total receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, plus 7 carries for 21 yards.

At first WR Ja’Marr Chase seemed to drop a lot of passes, but then as the season began, he proved to be the best weapon his former LSU QB Joe Burrow could have asked for, this young rookie able to get open deep and earn yards after the catch with his crafty running and speed in the open field, a big game expected on Sunday.

Super Bowl LVI MVP Longest Shot

These final two players on the list most likely won’t have a chance to snag this award (neither is a QB, after all), but they still receive odds from the odds makers and they still get mad props for even being on the list, especially the rookie.

Long Shot Veteran: Travin Howard (+50000)

Position: Outside Linebacker

Size: 6’ 1”, 219 pounds

Age: 25

NFL Team: Los Angeles Rams

College: TCU

2019 Stats Line (12 games): 21 total tackles, 3 passes defended, 1 interception

Howard has only been in the league for two seasons, and already he has made the oddsmakers’ list for possible Super Bowl MVP honors, although it would be tough considering the last linebacker chosen for this award was in 2016, Von Miller, this newer NFL veteran Howard fast becoming a solid part of the Rams 17th ranked defense.

Long Shot Veteran: Bobby Brown (+50000)

Position: Defensive Tackle

Size: 6’ 4”, 235 pounds

Age: 21

NFL Team: Los Angeles Rams

College: Texas A&M

2019 Stats Line (10 games): One tackle

How incredible of a Super Bowl would it have to be for an unknown rookie defensive tackle to win the MVP award, the only other defensive tackle to win this award was Dallas Cowboy Randy White who earned it in 1978, this longshot probably not worth betting on since his snaps will most likely be limited.
