With four weeks remaining in the 2023 NFL regular season, a two-player race is taking shape for the MVP race:

During Tuesday morning’s edition of The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross, former NFL quarterback Sean Salisbury joined the show to share his thoughts on the developing MVP race, explain his prediction, and much more.

Plus: Salisbury dives into the wild ending of Sunday’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.

Topics Discussed Include

  • Are the Dallas Cowboys back in the picture as a Super Bowl contender?
  • “I think they’re extremely dangerous.”
  • Sean says the 49ers are his favorite to come out of the NFC, with Dallas and Philadelphia behind
  • “The Cowboys are real. The question is, will they be real in January?”
  • If the season ended today, who is the NFL MVP: Brock Purdy or Dak Prescott?
  • Salisbury says he’s leaning towards Purdy, but it could depend on who finishes higher in the NFC standings
  • “I still lean Purdy… But right now, I would understand why Prescott could get it.”
  • Diving into the wild ending of the Chiefs’ loss to the Bills
  • Sean says that Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney was indeed offside
