Watch Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens (6-2) in action on Thursday Night Football as they travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins (2-7) – live on Sky Sports NFL from 1.20am in the early hours of Friday morning
As well as the one that leads to the Super Bowl, the race that tends to dominate discussions during every NFL season is: who is the league’s Most Valuable Player?
Aaron Rodgers is the reigning champion, and a three-time winner, Tom Bray has also claimed a hat-trick of wins en route to his seven Super Bowl titles, while Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are leading the way from the next generation with one crown apiece, in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
As to who is the NFL’s most ‘talented’ player? That is a different question, but one which former NFL offensive lineman Brian Baldinger believes he knows the answer.

“Lamar Jackson is still the league’s most talented player,” Baldinger said on Inside The Huddle (Sky Sports NFL, Tuesdays, 9pm).
“And now he is becoming the most talented player, with better quarterback skills.”
Sky Sports’ Neil Reynolds was just as effusive in his praise of Jackson, saying: “Within league circles, he is considered a bit of a Madden (video game) cheat code.
“He just does stuff that you shouldn’t be able to do.”
