As the 2011 NFL season is over 5 weeks old, I'm now going to take a look at the Top 5 players who have stood out for me in the first month or so.
This year so far is proving to be one of the best for a long time and I dont expect the excitement and drama to die down anytime soon. Its been a record breaking season for records broken, and thats only added to the intense entertainment seen across the United States each weekend.
So without further ado, here are my Top 5 players from the first 5 Weeks in the 2011 NFL season:
It was an exciting yet emotional week in the NFL as many paid homage to the death of the Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis.
Honoured with a minute's silence before the early games kicked off, the Raiders general manager passed away at his Oakland home, aged 82, the day before his beloved Raiders faced the Texans, but they would go on to put in a performance that would of made their late owner proud.
Meanwhile, in the NFC North, both the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers remained unbeaten highlighting their force in the race for play off positions.
Down and Out?: The Cowboys are all but out of the running for a Play-off position.
The first month of the NFL is over, and now only two teams hold an unbeaten record who funnily enough are part of the same division - the NFC North.
Those two teams are the defending Superbowl winners the Green Bay Packers and the surprise outfit this season the Detroit Lions. The Lions of who were not expected to be as strong this season are the early front runners and they continued this week with a stunning comeback victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
