what's up or through eight weeks of the NFL season.
And while not every team has reached the halfway point of their schedule, we've seen more than enough football to draw conclusions about 2019 season, both from a team and an individual level.
The M V P Award is almost always the domain of quarterbacks, especially these days.
So let's instead widen our field and take a look at the leading candidates for offensive and defensive player of the year, respectively.
Minnesota scuffled out of the gate, started the season two and two, but since they've won four games in a row to emerges a serious contender in all of those games have been dominant.
They want each of them by at least 10 points during the streak.
They're one offensive constant throughout all good in bad has been Dalvin Cook.
When the passing game spotted early, Cook was there, leading off the season with three straight 100 yard rushing games.
He leads the NFL rushing with 823 yards.
He leaves in yards from scrimmage with 1116 and his nine rushing touchdowns are also tops in the league.
The Vikingsoffense goes as he goes and right now there doesn't look like more complete, dangerous.
Back in the entire league.
Defensive Player of the Year boasts a familiar name near the top of the heap.
That would be Aaron Donald, the two time AP defensive.
Later, you're defending champion, Rams own world defensive lineman is bidding to become the 1st 3 peat winner in the award's history.
But while he's near the top, he's not at the top.
He's looking up at one guy in particular, and that would be San Francisco.
Rookie Nick Bo supposes turned that Niners defense into a complete force, second in the league in scoring defense behind New England.
And he's been the biggest reason why you got seven sacks that ranks top 10 in the league.
Only three off of the leader, Myles Garrett of Cleveland and his 11 tackles for loss are tied with Aaron Donald atop the NFL.
San Francisco is the story of the year early on and boast it is the reason that their defense under Robert Solid has been so good because it seems like a near locked for defensive rookie of the year.
But if he keeps up the second half like he has the 1st 7 games, he'll probably get a defensive clean sweep for yard Barker.
