Brock Purdy will once again be MVP favorite after win against Cardinals

The MVP race is currently a head-to-head against quarterbacks Brock Purdy and Dak Prescott, and Purdy has once again had a MVP-worthy performance while Prescott struggled in Week 15.

Brock Purdy threw for four touchdowns in a rout of the Cardinals, while Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott struggled against the Bills (and lost to the Cardinals too).

Stop me if you heard this one before, but the San Francisco 49ers won a game with an overpowering offensive display, coming off the back of another MVP-caliber performance by young quarterback Brock Purdy.

It would be ignorant to say that it was all Purdy with running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Deebo Samuel contributing with five touchdowns between them in a 45-29 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15, which happened to clinch the NFC West.

But Purdy did his MVP credentials a world of good as well.

Purdy finished the game going 16-of-25 passing for 242 yards and four touchdowns, including a nifty back-shoulder throw that was undoubtedly all because of the system and had absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with Purdy's ability to throw the ball with uncanny accuracy and underrated strength.

While the quest for a sixth Lombardi Trophy is obviously of the primary importance for San Francisco, it should be noted that Purdy's main rival for the MVP award had a horrible game that will no doubt launch Purdy into MVP favoritism all on his own.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a horrible game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, going 21-of-34 passing for 134 yards and one interception en route to being routed 31-10.

It was not been his day, but the loss for Dallas is a huge boost for the 49ers.

The Niners haven't had that issue with their win over the Cardinals, launching them to 11-3, and if the Philadelphia Eagles don't correct their issues against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, then a win there could give San Francisco one hand on that coveted No. 1 seed.

Either way, Purdy could very well be hoisting more than one prestigious trophy when the season is said and done.
