NFL Forecasting | MVP Favorites, 2018 Draft, More

As the NFL enters its sixth week, there have been many surprises thus far this season both good and bad. The Kansas City Chiefs, not the New England Patriots, are the only remaining unbeaten in the league. Injuries have robbed several teams of stars like Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota and other more serious injuries will end the season for the likes of J.J. Watt and Odell Beckham Jr. While it’s hard to say what might happen in the remaining 11 weeks of the season, here’s a good guess.

LEAGUE AWARDS

It’s difficult enough to pick an league MVP after 16 games let alone just five, but quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady have the best shot. Fans might not like to hear it, but at this point Brady is on track to take home another MVP award.

At 40 years of age, Brady is on pace to throw for 44 touchdowns…and 4 interceptions. His passer rating of 116.6 is better than every other season but one – the legendary 2007 campaign when he finished at 117.2.

The Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt is the Rookie of the Year just nudging past Houston’s Deshaun Watson. Hunt leads the NFL in rushing and is a big reason why Kansas City leads the NFL in rushing and is still unbeaten. Hunt became the first player in NFL history to record three 50-yard-plus touchdowns in his first three career games.

We have all the NFL stats from around the league.

Along with Hunt, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is the odds on favorite to win the league’s Coach of the Year. Kansas City is off to its best start in years and they have remained undefeated while playing a difficult schedule. They beat defending Super Bowl champ New England in Week 1 and followed that up with a win over Philadelphia, which is now 4-1.

FIGHTING FOR THE DRAFT

The New York Jets were supposed to tank the 2017 season. At 3-2, the Jets can’t even do that right. So far, it looks like the Browns and the 49ers are going to duke it out for the right to the first pick, but the New York Giants are doing their best to crash the party. The Giants just lost wide receivers Beckham and Brandon Marshall for the season. The offense was already bad. Now it’s really bad.

Don’t forget the Indianapolis Colts, owners of the worst defense in the National Football League. Indy gives up 31.8 points per game. The other team that is a likely Top 5 in next year’s draft is Chicago. The Bears are just 1-4 and will finish the season with rookie Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback. He just lost his first start, 20-17 to Minnesota last Monday night.

BEST CELEBRATIONS

One of the best moves the NFL made in the offseason was to lighten up on scoring celebrations. The results have been absolutely entertaining to say the least. There was Kyle Rudolph and his Vikings’ teammates rendition of Duck-Duck-Goose.

Chiefs’ TE Travis Kelce and his teammates broke out in a dance party and Beckham was able to perform CPR on his touchdown football bringing it back to life before spiking it. Green Bay receivers did their best Olympic bobsled imitation and the best touchdown celebration of all just might be the Philadelphia Eagles re-enactment of a baseball home run after a 59-yard scoring pass to WR Torrey Smith.

Miss Torrey Smith’s celebration? Here’s the video of it:
