Who Are the Favorites for Every Major NFL Award After Week 6?

The field for predicting the favorite players for every major NFL award got considerably harder based on the wild and wacky Week 6 action around the league. 

Some of the players and coaches that we identified in Week 5 as early clubhouse leaders for their respective categories had less-than-stellar games in Week 6. Prime examples were Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan, San Francisco QB Alex Smith and Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. 

One of the things about the NFL that is so amazing is how unpredictable certain teams will fare against specific opponents. Just when you think you have things figured out, events occur that defy logic.  

You recall the old math formula from school; If A is greater than B, and B is greater than C, then A must be greater than C. That formula doesn't hold up in the NFL. Here is an example to illustrate the point. Arizona defeats New England, New England thrashes Buffalo, but Buffalo defeats Arizona. You will see this kind of pattern emerging more often as the 2012 season continues. 

Our weekly presentation continues with a recap of Week 6 action and how the various performances impact each of the major NFL awards.
