How to Rank The Best: The NFL’s best players in my mind.
If you can’t decide which players you should rank, here’s a guide to finding them in your own mind.
The Seahawks’ Russell Wilson: If there’s one thing that Russell Wilson has accomplished this season, it’s making the Seahawks one of the NFL’s top teams.
Wilson led the league with 749 rushing yards and five touchdowns.
He has also added two more rushing touchdowns in his last two games against the Panthers and Cowboys.
Wilson has averaged a whopping 9.2 yards per carry this season.
Wilson is averaging nearly 17 yards per catch, and he has averaged nearly 17.4 yards per kick return.
The top receiver on the Seahawks has caught four passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns this season in Seattle’s first two games.
Wilson’s offensive line has given up just two sacks, while his pass protection has been stout.
Wilson isn’t going to get it done without some help from the offensive line.
Wilson and the Seahawks will need to take advantage of that.
New England Patriots: Tom Brady is back to being one of NFL’s elite quarterbacks.
Brady was among the league leaders in completion percentage, yards per attempt and passer rating this season with a passer rating of 98.3.
He had just one interception this season and just one fumble.
Brady’s numbers have remained solid despite a lack of consistent play.
The Patriots will need the same sort of consistency from their defense as they have in the past.
The offensive line will be crucial to this Patriots team as they look to win in New England.
Oakland Raiders: Derek Carr has made a strong impression in Oakland, as he has led the NFL in touchdown passes with 24.
Carr has thrown for a league-leading 6,093 yards and 29 touchdowns.
Carr and the Raiders have won three of their last four games, while Carr’s receiving corps has been extremely strong this season for a team that was in need of scoring.
Oakland has scored three touchdowns this year, including a game-tying touchdown to tight end Jared Cook in overtime.
Carr is averaging more than 18 yards per reception and more than 22 yards per kickoff return.
Carr also has a long touchdown run.
He will need that to continue to be productive.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Blake Bortles has been a big reason why the Jaguars have been able to win two of their past three games.
Bortes has thrown just five touchdown passes this season as he leads the league in passing efficiency with a whopping 105.4.
Bart Scott has started all 16 games at quarterback for the Jaguars this season despite missing four games due to injury.
Bick’s numbers this season have been solid, but he has also faced some of the league’s top quarterbacks.
Bontre Wilson, the Jaguars’ other quarterback, is a big part of the reason why Bort, Wilson and Breslin are all having solid seasons.
The Jaguars have won four of their four games against teams with winning records this season: the Patriots, Chargers, Cardinals and Packers.
Bets on Bortland vs. Breslins matchup: Bresls game against Bort could be the best matchup of the season.
Bregls has thrown two touchdowns and one interception in the Jaguars win over the Patriots.
Brent Grimes has thrown five touchdown and two interceptions in the loss to the Chargers.
The Titans and Bengals both have lost to the Jaguars in their last three games, and the Browns and Jaguars have lost their past two meetings with each other.
Arizona Cardinals: Carson Palmer has led Arizona to its best start since the 2009 season.
Palmer has completed more than 60 percent of his passes for 1,836 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Palmer is averaging 8.7 yards per pass attempt, and Palmer is completing passes with greater than 70 percent of the time.
Palmer leads the NFL with 17 rushing touchdowns this campaign.
Palmer will need a good performance from the offense to overcome a defense that has allowed more than 30 points to three quarterbacks in the same game this season (Bridgewater, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Carson Wentz).
Tennessee Titans: It would be a surprise to see Tennessee not take care of the ball in Week 3 against the Jets.
The Jets have allowed the NFL lead in points scored in three of the past four games.
It would also be a shock to see the Titans not take advantage and put up some points against the Patriots and Broncos.
This week against the Texans, the Titans should take advantage, as they are in position to do just that.
Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins offense has been among the NFL leaders in both rushing yards per game (734) and total yards per contest (6,742).
The Dolphins are averaging a league high 4.6 yards per rush, and they have allowed just two interceptions.
The Dolphins have scored four touchdowns this week.
The defense is playing at an elite level and will need some
