Tom Brady continues to dazzle NFL fans and there appears to be no end in sight.
The 44-year-old pulled off another miracle on Sunday via a game-winning touchdown to defeat the Buffalo Bills in overtime.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now 10-3 and fighting for the top spot in the NFC.
Brady, meanwhile, is leading the NFL in both passing yards and touchdowns.
He also has the most attempts by a wide margin, proving how much the Tampa Bay offense runs through the living legend.
This NFL season has had an odd feel to it and one thing that has been evident is that the MVP race has been open for weeks.
Brady has been the one who has remained steady and he now looks like the overwhelming favorite to win the award.
That would set not only NFL history, but professional sports history as well.

No one over the age of 40 has ever won an MVP award.
In fact, Brady is the only NFL player to win it at 40 when he won it several years ago.
History Within Reach
Brady and Barry Bonds are the only two athletes to ever win an MVP at the age of 40.
Bonds won it at 38 and 39 as well in his legendary, yet controversial career.

Brady has won the NFL MVP award three times in his career and is the reigning Super Bowl MVP as well.
Given his age and prior accolades, Brady has a leg up on the competition.
Add in the stats and there is no competition for the MVP award this year.
Brady is on pace to make professional sports history and the only person who may be able to break such a new record is Brady himself.
