Eye on Football Podcast: Midseason awards, Bengals-Dolphins preview

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

On the latest Eye on Football Podcast, Will Brinson and Ryan Wilson hand out midseason awards for everything from MVP (Peyton Manning's a no-brainer, right?) to the biggest disappointment through the first eight weeks (Texans? Giants? Steelers? Tom Brady? CJ Spiller?).

Then there are the biggest surprises, and that conversation starts with the Chiefs. But there are also the Chargers and Philip Rivers (if the playoffs started today -- that would be weird, we know, but for the purposes of discussion, roll with it -- San Diego would be in), as well as the Panthers, Cam Newton and that suddenly tenacious defense.

The discussion then turns to the Thursday night matchup between the Bengals and the Dolphins. Cincinnati is coming off a 49-9 blowout win over the Jets and quarterback Andy Dalton is playing the best football of his young career. Miami, meanwhile, appears to be coming apart at the seams following their fourth straight loss, the last against New England.

So can the Dolphins protect Ryan Tannehill? Can the offense find a way to get the ball to Mike Wallace? And will Dalton show up in a nationally televised game?

We talk about all this and more on the podcast.
