While Denver Broncos' Peyton Manning doesn't have a vote in the league MVP, he has plenty of experience with the award. Since 2003, Manning has won the award five times which is an NFL record and can recognize an MVP-caliber season.
So when Manning says he believes Cam Newton is the MVP, that certainly carries a great deal of weight.
The Carolina Panthers' quarterback has had an incredible season, a season that ranks up there with some of Manning's MVP seasons.
This season Newton's yardage total and touchdown totals rank higher than three of Manning's MVP seasons and his interception is tied for the lowest the Broncos' quarterback has had in an MVP season.
Manning isn't the only quarterback to endorse Newton as the MVP, as Russell Wilson said it before the NFC Divisional Round playoff game between the Seahawks and Panthers. Even back in December, Saints' quarterback Drew Brees said on NFL Network that he was 'absolutely deserving of the MVP'.
The MVP award will be announced Saturday night during the 'NFL Honors' show on CBS at 9 PM EST.
