NFL Awards: 2016 Midseason Predictions
The halfway point of the NFL season brings plenty of intrigue as to who takes home awards at the end of the year. Let’s choose who takes home the awards.
We have entered the mid-season portion of the award predictions. There are plenty of surprises so far in the NFL year with teams over-achieving or playing team ball. Also, remain the mainstays that continue to remain near or atop contention for an award.
The quarterback position is typically the choice for MVP, but unlike in year’s past this is the season without Peyton Manning. Despite missing four-games due to a suspension, Tom Brady is always up for the MVP; however, Matt Ryan, Matt Stafford and Dak Prescott are making it interesting.
Other prizes, which need more clearing of the cob webs is Coach of the Year, Defensive Rookie of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year. First-year coaches are the first place to look, but Bill Belichick and Jason Garrett create frustration in who should win.
Joey Bosa missed the beginning of the season, yet Jalen Ramsey is talking and backing it up with his play. Unlike Coach of the Year, there are two choices that could win the trophy, like Marcus Peters before them.
