The halfway point of the NFL season is upon us. And that means it's time to hand out awards. Below are my midseason picks as well as a link to all the excellent content we're cranking out in CBSSports.com Midseason Midtacular*.
MVP -- Peyton Manning -- Manning has nearly 3,000 passing yards and 29 touchdowns through eight games. He's averaging 364.9 freaking passing yards per games. Manning's playing the best he's played in an unbelievable career eight games in. It's mindblowing.
DROY - Sheldon Richardson - Paired up next to Muhammad Wilkerson, the Jes first-round pick has been a total nightmare for opposing offensive lines with 2.5 sacks, a pass deflection and a forced fumble through seven games.
