The 2018 MVP Race is More Competitive Than Many Expect
The NFL is a crazy and wild place. A team could win the super bowl one year then be sub .500 the next year. While football may be a team sport certain individuals help their teams way more than any other player. That one player is usually referred to as the most valuable player or MVP. But some players impact the game so greatly that it goes beyond just their teams MVP but instead the leagues most valuable player.
Well, it’s been a busy day for the Cleveland Browns organization. After three years of constantly losing, even when the team probably shouldn’t have been, based on talent, the team had decided to part ways with head coach Hue Jackson.
With the NFL season already a quarter of the way through, it is time to check up on some of the top divisions around the league. The crazy thing…the AFC North was not thought of as a top division in football at all entering the season. It’s crazy how fast team turnover can be in the NFL.
After sitting all of last year Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has officially gotten his time to shine and that’s exactly what he did. Through the first three weeks of the NFL season, Mahomes has thrown for 896 yards and 13 touchdowns while managing to throw zero interceptions in the process.
Last year the NFC South was easily the toughest division in football. Will that trend continue into this year? Will the Panthers be able to continue their dominance and make another playoff run? Can Cam Newton get back to MVP Form? Find out my thoughts below.
Last year, there was only one NFC team that was in the playoffs who also were in the 2016 playoffs. The Saints were one of the teams that made it last year but failed to do so the three consecutive years before that. Will they repeat last season’s success or return to previous outcomes?
