Who is better in the NFL, Dak Prescott or Dak Burrow? Prescott won the MVP award last season after leading the Cowboys from 6–10 to 12-5. But, he’s still a question mark for Week 4. After all, Burrow had a much easier schedule at the end of the season. But both quarterbacks are capable of throwing 20+ yard touchdown passes and have very different game plans. Which quarterback will win the MVP award?
The Bengals will be without Carson Palmer for the first two weeks of the regular season. Burrow led the Bengals to a record of 4-2 in their first six games. In Week 11, he sustained a severe knee injury. He had a torn ACL and partial PCL. He was on pace for 700 pass attempts and over 4,500 yards in the regular season. The Bengals are likely to have to replace him if they want to stay in the AFC playoff race.
The AFC North title was won by the Bengals in 2016. Since 2001, no running back has been able to win it. But in 2019, Burrow threw the game-winning touchdown to CeeDee Lamb in overtime against the Patriots. While he’s not a good runner-up candidate, the former Ohio State standout is the favorite to win the Comeback Player of the Year award this year. Due to injury, Prescott missed four games in 2020. With his increased mobility, he’s a likely candidate.
Which quarterback will win this year’s MVP award? The NFL has a long history of hiring quarterbacks. In 19 seasons, 13 times have quarterbacks won it. But this year’s NFL MVP odds are still pretty low. If Burrow is the MVP, he’s a great bet, but the odds for Prescott are much better. The Jaguars have already offered Tim Tebow a chance.
The NFL MVP award is a very difficult award to win, and Dak Prescott should be the winner, despite his late season struggles. Many predicted that Dak Prescott would win. The NFL Honors ceremony will be held on Feb. 10, a few days before Super Bowl LVI. It’s not like the NFL MVP award is based on performance. But it is based on talent.
Joe Burrow had a difficult rookie season after he tore his ACL and MCL in Week 10. His remarkable comeback earned him the AP Comeback Player award. He received 28 votes, compared to Prescott’s 20. Another runner-up was Chargers defensive back Derwin James. In his second year, Joe Burrow has more playoff wins than Prescott has in six seasons. His ability to play in the playoffs is a good example of a quarterback who has overcome injuries.
