The Sportsletter Team’s Picks for MVP, DPOY, ROY & Coach of the Year

We’re about to kick off Week 10 tonight with another brutal Thursday Night Football showcase between the Falcons and Panthers. The NFC South is in shambles. Before Week 10 begins and we unbox the second half of the season, it’s time for our midseason awards. The MVP appears to be a three-horse race, as well as the Coach of the Year award, but almost every NFL poll has the same five players tabbed for OPOY, DPOY, rookie awards, and Comeback POY. We didn’t deviate either — because they’re pretty straightforward. The second half of the season starts tonight.
