With every team in the NFL having played at least 8 games, we are now at the midway point in the NFL regular season. It’s time to take a look at which players have shone brightest in each team, and who takes the highly coveted mid-season MVP awards. First up, the teams from the AFC.
#1 New England Patriots - Tom Brady
Tom Brady is not only the Patriots’ MVP, but the League-wide MVP favourite as we reach the mid-way point of the season.
Brady has had three games with a completion percentage over 70%, he’s had multiple touchdowns in every game for 22 total and he has had 6 of 8 games with a passer rating above 100.00. His stat line, as good as it is, could be even better. What’s more, it doesn’t even begin to describe how well Tom Brady is playing.
He is now 8-0 for the second time in his career. At 38 years old, he looks quicker than he has in a decade, moving well in the pocket and firing darts downfield.
Behind a rotating and injury-stricken offensive line, this may be Brady’s most impressive season yet; and that is saying something given the future hall-of-famer’s decorated career. With the march he is on, it is going to take something special to stop Brady picking up his third NFL MVP award.
