With the season officially three-quarters over, it’s time to start looking at the NFL MVP race. And it’s actually a race this year, a welcome change after Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (deservedly) coasted to victory in 2011.
Three of the 50 Associated Press voters recently tweeted some MVP thoughts.

Just finished watching tapes of Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson. At this point, both should be top 3 MVP candidates.—

Six names. No overlap. We’re in for a good finish.
I plan to go into more detail on the MVP candidates in upcoming weeks. But if I had to rank just those six names in my order of preference, it would be Watt, Manning, Rodgers, Peterson, Johnson, Luck.
