Right now it really still is too early to just except defeat and hand him the award.
I agree that we shouldn't just hand him the award, obviously there is still plenty of football left. I was merely suggesting that at this point in time, he is surely a candidate, and if his numbers continue to hold up to what they have been then he would surely be in the mix amongst the top few players.
Going back to the teams he has played against. He also put up over 100 rushing, 175 yards passing, and 1 touchdown against the number one defense in your very own Green Bay Packers. Besides, we see time and time where poorly ranked defenses play great defensively many weeks, but end up giving up big yards on a just few plays. We also see top ranked defenses get burned too.
