With the Green Bay Packers beating up on the Chicago Bears on Thursday night, Week 2 of the NFL season is already underway.
Some ugly football took place at Lambeau Field, but if there was a MVP award to hand out, the runaway winner would be Green Bay’s outside linebacker Clay Matthews.
It is easy to hand out MVPs after the game has been played, but predicting the MVP leading up to the game is a bit harder.
Much like with fantasy owners, matchups and history play a large factor into who to choose. The MVP can also only go to a player on the winning team, so, in essence, the prediction is twofold.
Here are my predictions of the MVP for each game this coming week. (By the way, had I published this Thursday morning, I would have selected Clay Matthews, of course.)
