In Week 17, the New England Patriots were able to finish up their season with a win over the New York Jets. For Tom Brady, it should be him wrapping up an MVP season.

The New England Patriots were able to end their season with a 20-point win over the New York Jets to secure the No.1 seed in the AFC. Even though the season started out a bit rocky for the Patriots, they were able to weather the storm and have a great season.

For the Patriots, there is no denying who their MVP was, as Tom Brady had another fantastic season for New England. After winning his fifth Super Bowl last season, Brady had another great season in 2017.

Despite the offensive line and defense struggling in the beginning of the season, Brady was able to have some huge games and make some big plays for the Patriots. Brady ended up finishing the 2017 season with over 4,500 passing yards, 32 passing touchdowns, and eight interceptions.

Even though Brady did struggle with turnovers toward the end of the season, he was able to still able to have one of the best touchdown to interception ratios in the league. With the Patriots securing the No.1 seed in the AFC, it should be Brady who wins the league MVP.

Due to the injury to Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles a few weeks ago, Brady became the clear front-runner for the award. If not for the injury to Wentz, he very well could have won the award. However, it should be going to Brady now this season.

Even though Brady only cares about winning championships, another MVP to his mantle will only help him solidify his spot as the greatest quarterback of all-time. Brady and the Patriots will surely be happy about the upcoming bye week to get a bit healthier before the playoffs start. After the bye week, the quest for their sixth ring will begin.
