Who Are the Favorites for Every Major NFL Award After Week 7?
Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE
J.J. Watt continues to excel in 2012 season.

The favorites for each of 2012's major NFL awards continue to make their mark with solid play week after week. The performances we witnessed in Week 7 were no exception, but in some cases, we have pulled some names that appeared in the Week 6 edition due to poor play and injuries.

Before we get into the individual award races, we did want to acknowledge some outstanding performances in Week 7.

Kudos go out to Tampa Bay Bucs WR Vincent Jackson (216 receiving yards), Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson (195 rushing yards), Tampa Bay Bucs QB Josh Freeman (420 passing yards), San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (182 yards from scrimmage), New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (377 passing yards) and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (342 passing yards). 

We will shortly be hitting the second half of the 2012 season, so players that want to be considered for any major award need to make their mark—the sooner the better. 

One factor that is fair to ponder is how many of the major awards will go to players from the AFC, as clearly the vast majority of better records belong to NFC teams. It will be interesting to see how big of a factor winning will be in deciding who takes home each of the major awards. 

Our weekly presentation continues with a recap of Week 7 action and how the various performances impact each of the major NFL awards.
