We have arrived at the halfway point of the NFL season. Here’s a brief rundown of who are contenders, outsiders and are planning for next season.
1. Buffalo Bills
This is their year to start becoming the dominant franchise in this division.
2. New England Patriots
With Brady’s departure it will be interesting to see if another former league MVP in Cam Newton can continue their winning ways.
3. Miami Dolphins
A few shrewd moves in the offseason has their future looking a lot better than it was one year ago.
4. New York Jets
I still don’t think they know what they’re doing with a suspect offensive line and then trading away their best defensive player.
Why Did It Go To Overtime?
The trend in the NFL has been to just go for it on fourth down more often than not. Whether you’re ahead or behind, the odds are most head coaches will go for it and consequences be damned.
