The 2009 NFL season is more than half way over and we are finally getting a feel for our teams. There have been several surprises so far three games deep into Week 12.
Who would have thought that the Minnesota Vikings would be 9-1 or that the Cincinnati Bengals would be leading the AFC North with a 7-3 record?
How about Vince Young coming off the bench and taking the Tennessee Titans on a four-game winning streak?
After Monday, there are five games left, and teams are giving it their all. Players who are helping their teams the most by positions are:
QB's - Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, who all have over 3,000 yards passing;
RB's - Chris Johnson, Steven Jackson, and Adrian Peterson, who all have over 1,000 yards rushing, except Peterson who is 1 yard shy;
WR's - Reggie Wayne, Randy Moss, and Andre Johnson, who all have over 875 yards;
Defense - Curtis Lofton, Patrick Willis, London Fletcher, who all have over 90 tackles.
The grocery workers - Elvis Dumervil, Jared Allen, and James Harrison, who all have over 10 sacks.
The thieves - Jairus Byrd, Darren Sharper, and Charles Woodson, who all have 7 interceptions or more.
As the season winds down quickly, every team is emptying their tanks trying to get pencil in their names into the playoff pictures.
Only 12 teams get their shot at the Super Bowl, while the rest of the field is sent home packing.
While 12 teams get their shot at the title, only one team can go meet the President of the United States.
I will give you all my predictions on the rest of the season and tell you who will punch their ticket to the playoffs. While the other teams get a little extra time on vacation.
