The NFC Divisional Round matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers will showcase two of the league’s best quarterbacks, Russell Wilson and Cam Newton, both of whom are also MVP candidates.
Both have played at an elite level in 2015, but according to Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer, Wilson thinks Newton deserves the league’s biggest individual accolade:

Newton guided the Panthers to a 15-1 record and home-field advantage in the NFC. He threw for 3,837 yards and 35 touchdowns while tossing just 10 interceptions, and Newton led all NFL quarterbacks with 636 yards rushing and 10 scores.
