    Here it is an article in NFL.com that talks about his MVP candidates, and puts JJ Watt in 4th place.

    Here it is the bit on why Watt should be considered to be the MVP

    4. J.J. Watt, Houston Texans
    Watt just completed one of the greatest defensive seasons of our lifetime. His consistency week-to-week was outrageous, and he closed strong with a Defensive Player of the Month award in December.

    Here's a good peak at Watt's dominance. Football Outsiders defines a "defeat" as a forced turnover (or tipped pass that leads to turnover), a tackle for loss, or a tackle or pass defensed that prevented a conversion on third or fourth down. Essentially, how many times did a defensive player completely dominate the play?

    Watt had 56 defeats this season. The previous all-time high was Ray Lewis with 45 defeats in 1999. Von Miller "only" had 39 defeats, which is good for seventh-best ever. I feel guilty for not ranking Watt higher.

    ProFootballFocus watches every single player, every single play and chose the player who dominated his position the most. And JJ Watt won. Dominated.
