Four weeks into the NFL season and the cream has separated itself in the race for the Most Valuable Player award. Prior to the season, Patrick Mahomes led the list at 5-1, double the odds of his closest competitor.

After not being on this list to start the season, Murray has shot up the MVP board to find himself sitting right at the very top. Murray has led the Cardinals to a 4-0 record and the only team left in the league with a chance to join the 1972 Dolphins as the NFL’s only perfect team.

Allen opened the season at 13-1, and following the Bills’ fast start, he has landed in the No. 2 spot following the season’s first month. A must-see matchup on Sunday night will likely decide who has the edge between Allen and Mahomes as the biggest threat to Murray.

The favorite to win MVP before the season started has dropped to third on the list after a relatively slow start. Stuck in the AFC West basement, the Chiefs and Mahomes have a crucial showdown with the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night. With a more manageable schedule upcoming, expect Mahomes to be right around the top of the list, not just next month but all season.

Prior to the season starting, Prescott wasn’t even on the list for MVP candidates. But just like the other names, Prescott has shot up the odds board. Sitting at 3-1 in a division that nobody expected much out of, the Cowboys seem like the class of the NFC East and on cruise control for the division title. As long as Dallas is firing on all cylinders offensively and keeping the wins coming, there is no reason to expect Prescott to fall from this list.

After a tumultuous offseason and a horrible loss in Week 1 to the New Orleans Saints, the Green Bay Packers have rolled off three straight wins to get to the top of the NFC North, which has Rodgers back in the MVP conversation. In what might be his last year in Green Bay colors, look for Rodgers and the Packers to be up there all year.

Another person not on this list at the beginning of the season, Herbert, has proved his rookie season was not a fluke. Playing in the rugged AFC West, Herbert led the Chargers to a key win in Kansas City in Week 3 and has them tied for the division lead at 3-1. However, the schedule does not get easier, so expect Herbert to potentially fall from this list as the weeks progress.
