Winner: Eli Manning

Eli Manning is the key to the Giants success and he will lead them to victory in 2015. Manning will take back his Super Bowl form in the second year of Ben McAdoo’s West coast offense. Things are only looking up for the Giants’ offense, especially because the NFL’s best slot receivers, Victor Cruz, is returning.

With the help of Odell Beckham and Cruz, Manning will be throwing touchdowns like a madman. The only thing that will slow him down will be his offensive line. If the unit is able to stay together the sky is the limit for Manning.

The MVP for the Giants squad sounds accurate for Manning in this competition, but he’s going to have to work very hard to win the MVP award in reality. Manning isn’t really a stats quarterback, but this year is his chance to change that.

With a stable running game and a new weapon out of the backfield in Shane Vereen, Manning will manage to lower his interception total to single digits for the first time since 2004. Most people would call that crazy, but if you do the math Manning wasn’t that far away from it this year.
