Tua has put elite numbers all season so far, leading the NFL in passer rating and QBR (ESPN), all while ranking in the Top-5 for passing touchdowns, completion percentage, and passing yards per game. He’s also 6-0 in games he’s started and finished this season, the 2nd-best record among all NFL quarterbacks (Jalen Hurts).
While this award isn’t technically part of the NFL’s official awards list, it’s a good indication of the respect Tua has earned this season. And who knows, continue down this path, and Tua may very well be holding up the official MVP award at the end of the season.
