Prescott is also coming off a massive performance in a 45-10 win over the Washington Commanders. He completed 22 of 32 passes for 331 yards and four touchdowns in the win.

It was an impressive bounce-back performance from the veteran after he threw for just 189 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 11 win over the Carolina Panthers.

The 30-year-old also remains in the MVP conversation this season as he has led the Cowboys to an 8-3 record and one of the top spots in the NFC while completing 70 percent of his passes for 2,935 yards and 23 touchdowns against six interceptions, in addition to rushing for 151 yards and two scores.

Hurts is also in the MVP conversation and his Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 10-1. His performance in a comeback overtime victory against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 was inspiring.

The 25-year-old completed 18 of 31 passes for 200 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, in addition to rushing for 65 yards and two scores.

Hurts has completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 2,697 yards and 18 touchdowns against 10 interceptions in 11 games, in addition to rushing for 410 yards and 11 scores. If he continues to compete at a high level, he could lock up his first career MVP award.

St. Brown, meanwhile, put together one of the best receiving performances of Week 12 with nine catches for 95 yards on 11 targets in a 29-22 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The 24-year-old has been one of the best wideouts in the NFL this season, catching 82 passes for 993 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games as Jared Goff’s go-to option.

In part because of St. Brown, the Lions are first in the NFC North with an 8-3 record.

Bates saw one of the biggest ratings bumps of the week as he jumped from a 93 to a 95 following a lockdown performance in a 24-15 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. He posted one interception, which was returned for a touchdown, one pass breakup, one forced fumble and 12 tackles in the win.

Bates has been one of the best safeties in the NFL this season, posting four interceptions, six pass breakups, three forced fumbles and 85 tackles in 11 games. Because of him, the Falcons have the chance to win the NFC South as they are currently atop the division with a 5-6 record.
