There are a lot of people this could go to but to me it is no doubt Andy Dalton. Why? Because this has to be his breakout year. Besides one game against the Cleveland Browns where Andy Dalton was just dreadful, the Red Rifle has played well this year, beyond normal expectation.

Against, Miami, Dalton has a chance to become only the 4th QB in NFL History have 4 games in a row with 300 yards passing and 3 touchdowns. Bear in mind, nobody has ever done this 5 times in a row.  If this offense is going to live and die at the helm of Andy Dalton, then their 6-2 record at the halfway point is enough to call him an MVP.

My offensive MVP would have to go to A.J. Green. He’s continued to show why he’s one of the game’s best receivers as he leads the league in receiving yards (862) and is third in the league in first down receptions (38). He keeps the chains moving and the offense rolling as they’ll now have to be the unit that carries the team with so many injuries on the defense.

Green also allows guys like Marvin Jones and Jermaine Gresham more space to operate with underneath as he draws multiple defenders on many of his snaps.
