3. Defensive Upgrades
This is obviously not a direct factor for Hurts’ play, but the upgrades to the Eagles defense this offseason could end up helping his MVP chances too.
Keeping most of the key cogs in the defense while adding a couple incredibly promising d-linemen in the draft earned the Philly offseason an “A” grade from Pro Football Focus, and this should be a dominant unit.
That means the Eagles should again have one of the best records in the NFL, and winning games absolutely matters for taking home an MVP award. Quarterbacks who put up big numbers in losses get “garbage time” and “empty stats” labels thrown at them, and only one of the last 10 quarterbacks to win MVP lost more than four games (Matt Ryan, whose Falcons still went 11-5).
If you want to back Hurts to win MVP, there’s no better place than DraftKings Sportsbook.
