3. Emmanuel Sanders
The Denver Broncos’ offensive MVP continues to be wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Sanders has been a weapon as a receiver, obviously, but also as a runner, and his abilities as a runner on jet sweeps helped to set up an incredible trick play where he threw a touchdown pass to rookie Courtland Sutton.
Sanders added a brilliant 64-yard touchdown catch in which NFL’ Next Gen stats (according to the TV broadcast) indicated he was the most wide-open receiver in the league this year on a pass play with nearly 11 yards of separation.
Sanders’ impact this season simply cannot be overstated. He’s now caught, run for, and thrown a touchdown pass this season. He’s found the fountain of youth at the age of 31, and looks like a rejuvenated superstar at the wide receiver position.
He finished this game with six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown along with the passing touchdown.
