With only five games remaining in the NFL's regular season, fans and analysts alike begin to wonder which player will be named the 2012 League MVP. This year, there are a number of players having tremendous, award-worthy seasons.

There are the "usuals," such as Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, each with a trophy (or trophies) already to their names. There are the leaders of the next generation, such as Matt Ryan and JJ Watt, who have proved to be a vital part of their teams' success. There are even running backs who, despite the position's recent devaluing, have made an indelible mark on their 2012 squads.

These are the top 10 candidates for the NFL's Most Valuable Player award.
