Vote: Who is the early pick for MVP?
Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott may be rookies but they have racked up winning numbers in helping the Dallas Cowboys to a 5-1 record and first place in the NFC East.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and Pink Amari Cooper Jersey Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger both have their teams off to 4-2 starts. And Sam Bradford, who a week before the season was with the Philadelphia Eagles, has guided the Minnesota Vikings to a 5-0 start.
And then there's Tom Brady. He has played only two games for the New England Patriots this season, but he has done it at an MVP level.
So, with all that said ...
Philadelphia's offense has actually been more efficient overall than the Vikings, as the chart above shows.
With the Bradford trade, the Eagles were able to offset some of the losses incurred when they moved up to secure the No. 2 overall pick in last April's draft. And they cleared a path for their quarterback of the future, who has already won Rookie of the Week three times and certainly looks the part in the early going.
Roseman often talks about the importance of both sides coming away feeling good about the deal that was negotiated, and that looks to be the case here to this point. And, as predicted, the trade has had a significant impact on both organizations and the NFC at large.
Norman is 13th http://www.authenticfootballs.com/amari-cooper-jersey-c-1_1054_1076.html with a grade of 83.6. He surrendered only 12 receiving yards on Sunday against Philadelphia.
Opponents' passing numbers are soaring in every category, according to ESPN Stats & Information. They're completing 64.6 percent of their attempts, up from 60 percent in 2015. They are averaging 8.4 yards an attempt, up from 6.2.
Rescinding the franchise tag was a move that seemed to be about making a point, because Norman and his representatives wouldn't back off the $14 million-$15 million a year that they sought -- and got from Washington.
Still, you could argue that Beckham's outburst against the Packers in no way affected the outcome of the game. It was harder to defend his actions Sunday, when, after scoring the go-ahead touchdown against the Ravens, he proceeded to rip off his helmet, automatically costing his team a 15-yard penalty on the ensuing kickoff and jeopardizing the game that the Giants absolutely needed to win. (This was before he made a show of carrying his relationship with the kicking net to the next level.)
