Nick Wright tips quarterback Kyler Murray for late NFL MVP challenge

Popular American sportscaster Nick Wright was the first to point out that Murray should be considered in the NFL MVP race ahead of Seahawks’ Russell Wilson.

“With absolutely no disrespect intended to Josh Allen, he’s not in the discussion…He’s out. There are three MVP candidates. It is Patrick Mahomes. It is Aaron Rodgers. And it is the quarterback of the winner of the NFC West, Russ or Kyler.

“Because you can’t win the MVP if you don’t win your division. So the answer is Kyler. Because Josh Allen’s not even going to be eligible for it.

“But Russ and Kyler which of those two were in the discussion, Jenna, that’s going to come down to which of their teams wins the division,” Wright said on the show.
