NFL Midseason Awards

1 of 11

Raanan's Midway Honors

By Jordan Raanan, XFINITY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts would compete for the playoffs. The Minnesota Vikings, too. The Falcons had a chance to go unbeaten, Reggie Wayne would lead the league in receiving, and Vontaze Burfict would be one of the league's top rookies: These were my preseason predictions. Nailed it. (Writer's note: I conveniently can't find the link to those bold predictions.)

The first half of the NFL season unfolded just as expected... or not. In any case, here are the standouts after eight—or in some cases nine—games. Regardless, let's call it my NFL midseason awards. Just as I predicted before the season, of course.
