Last season, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers put up some incredible statistics.
He led the league in passing yards (4,710), yards per game (294.4) and yards per attempt (8.7). He also had the second-best QB rating (101.8), the third-best completion percentage (66.0), and the fifth-most TDs (30) with only 13 interceptions.
Despite all that, the MVP award went to New England QB Tom Brady for the second time in his career.
If Rivers puts up similar numbers this year and the Chargers get off to an uncharacteristically good start, Rivers may have some value in NFL MVP futures.
