Is J.J. Watt the clear favorite for Defensive MVP?

J.J. Watt is having the kind of season that comes along once a decade at best. He is the hands-down best defensive player in football and should get some NFL MVP votes as well.
The only reason it's even a debate between Watt, Von Mller and Alden Smith is because sack numbers means headlines. Miller and Smith are fantastic players with lots of sacks.
But compared to Watt, their overall seasons pale in comparison.

He certainly is. While Von Miller is having a really tremendous season, JJ's individual production is unprecedented for his position or any other. Also, when you add in the fact that his team has the best record in the NFL, this should be a slam dunk.
