Rank 'Em: NFL MVP Candidates

Where does Drew Brees rank?

How do you size up the NFL MVP race?

The Vikings, Saints, and Broncos both remained undefeated last week, primarily due to big-time games from their MVP candidates. Jared Allen and Elvis Dumervil had three sacks combined, while Brett Favre and Drew Brees continue to put up big-time numbers. A familiar face also re-entered the race, as Tom Brady put his hat into the ring with a six-touchdown performance against the hapless Titans.
