The NFL regular season is halfway over. Which means we get to hand out some fake trophies for the midseason awards.

There are a couple of cases for midseason Most Valuable Player but  quarterback Carson Wentz has been tearing the league up this year. He has led his team to a 8-1 start through the first nine weeks of the season and leads the NFL in passing touchdowns, third in total QBR (quarterback rating), and fourth in passing yards just to name a few. The Philadelphia Eagles lead the league in 3rd down conversions with 46.8%. This is also very impressive seeing as he is only in his second NFL season.

For midseason Defensive Player of the Year, Calais Campbell has helped turn the Jacksonville Jaguars in to the top defense in the league. He leads the league with 11 sacks and tied for third in forced fumbles with two. He also plays every position on the defensive line which he can do with his 6’8” frame. This is also his first season with the Jaguars since they just signed him from the Arizona Cardinals. He has accounted for 32% of the Jaguars sacks and the team as a whole leads the league with 35.

Midseason Rookie of the Year has one clear cut winner. His name is Deshaun Watson and he was having a record breaking rookie season before tearing his ACL in a non-contact practice. Before the injury he was tied with Carson Wentz for most touchdowns in the league and led the league with a 81.3 QBR. He was not just having a Rookie of the Year season but he was having a borderline MVP season as well. He is ranked second in the NFL for quarterbacks only to Carson Wentz.

It seems that on offense the young players are starting to flourish while on the defensive side of the ball, the veterans still run the field.
