It’s about that time to revisit the NSFL preseason predictions to see how teams have shaped up at the midpoint of the season. There are some losers, some winners, some big surprises and letdowns. Lets take a look to see how the NSFL has been so far this year..
NFC Top 5 Teams
#2. Green Bay Packers– They have had a good first half of the season only stumbling once against the Vikings leading up tot their current 7-1 record, HB Eddie Lacy has been the work horse of this team leading the league in rushing.
#3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers– Not off to a bad start this far into the season with a record of 5-2 while behind the dominance of their number one defense.
#4. Arizona Cardinals– Not having the best start this half coming up with a 5-3 record mostly being due to the inexperience of the Rookie QB Logan Thomas.
#5. Chicago Bears– Coming off of a rough four games where they were 1-3 the Bears have came back on a 4 game winning streak to put them here with a 5-3 record. Most of their losses are due to QB Jay Cutler making poor decision leading to multiple interceptions, maybe when he recovers from his current injuries his performance will have improved.
AFC Top 5 Teams
#2. Cleveland Browns– So far in this half of the season they are 6-1 while he does have the #3 defense in the league, he lacks outstanding numbers on offense in result doing just enough to win the game.
#4. Oakland Raiders– Great first five games before stumbling with two losses putting their record at 5-2. Rookie QB Derek Carr has looked good the first half of this season the question will be can he keep it up for the rest of the season?
#5. Kansas City Chiefs– Coming up with mediocre performance this far into the season with a 4-3 record. Which is mostly due to HB Jamaal Charles averaging 85.9 yards a game and only 2 TD for this half of the season.
NSFL MVP Race
#1. DeMarco Murray- 179 ATT 933 yards 103.7 AVG
#2. Tony Romo- QBR of 116.2 1750 yards 20 TD 8 INT 71% COMP 194.4 YPG
#3. Eddie Lacy- 172 ATT 1,110 yards 10 TD 138.8 AVG
#4. Dez Bryant- 45 REC 653 yards 11 TD 72.6 AVG
#5. Aaron Rodgers- QBR of 85.3 1,632 yards 16 TD 18 INT 60% COMP 204 YPG
There seems to be a competitiveness between the Cowboys and Packers for the MVP slots. I wonder if there are any others that will step up and do what it takes to join this cut-throat race?
Seattle Seahawks– Who is at a devastating 1-6 with such an Elite team that boosts so much talent on both sides of the ball. Will this coach turn this team around and possibly make the playoffs?
Oakland Raiders– Surprising everyone with a 5-2 record with really no great talent on this team they must have found a great coach in Eman. Will they continue this two loss slump or will they recover and make it to the playoffs?
