Number Two: MVP Race
Right now the MVP race has several names swirling through the ranks, but amongst those names are New Orleans Saints signal-caller Drew Brees and running back Alvin Kamara.
The tandem of those two guys have single-handedly carried the Saints to several victories this season and if they continue the great work could go home with some hardware following the season.
This very well could be the final season we see Drew Brees sport the black and gold as he will likely retire following this season regardless of the outcome and he is still playing at an MVP level.
Yes, Brees had some early-season struggles, but the fact that he has been able to knock off great teams like the Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Carolina Panthers without several star players for the majority of those games proves how well he has actually been playing.
Brees beat the very good Chicago Bears without his top three wide receivers of Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Marquez Callaway and still managed to have a great game. Brees is silencing his haters from the early weeks and has bounced back to log pretty impressive stats this season.
Through seven games this season, Brees has recorded a 5-2 record, completed 73.1 percent of his passes, thrown for 1,898 passing yards, thrown for 13 touchdowns, ran for two touchdowns, and has thrown just three interceptions.
If Brees can beat Brady twice in one season, he will likely garner some more mentions in the MVP race.
