As for Hurts, he had 3,701 passing yards, 760 rushing yards and 35 combined touchdowns while leading the Eagles to No. 1 seed in the NFC, and they’re also now in the NFC Championship Game for the second time in six seasons.
Jefferson also had a strong regular season before the Vikings’ collapse in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. He led the NFL with 128 catches and 1,809 receiving yards in his third season in Minnesota. He’s the only non-QB on the list.
As for Burrow, he has been the Bengals’ most important asset, leading them to the AFC Championship Game, with 35 touchdowns passing for 4,475 yards.
One who also had a huge season was Allen of the Bills, who were disappointed in their Divisional Round game with the Bengals. Allen had 4,283 passing yards for the season, with 35 touchdowns too.
