1. New York Giants
The defending Super Bowl champions are 8-1 in the 2008 NFL season and they look very, very good. Eli Manning has blossomed into a superstar at quarterback and the defense can still produce a lot of pressure. It won’t be easy for the Giants but they are a team no one wants to face in the playoffs.
Most years, the NFL is a league that is tough on rookies. The veterans are bigger, tougher, stronger and are able to impose their will. However, the 2008 NFL season has seen a number of rookie running backs flourish. In Week 9, the headlines were doinated by these rookie running backs.
With seven weeks in the books, here’s a quick rundown on the best teams in the NFL so far this season.
5) Buffalo Bills (5-1)
The Buffalo Bills have surprised almost every NFL league expert by being one of the best teams in the NFL. Offensively, Trent Edwards is a very good game manager, while Marshawn Lynch is one of the best young running backs in the league. Buffalo’s defense is good and is seemingly improving on a weekly basis.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots strolled into the 2008 NFL season with high hopes and Super Bowl dreams. After the first week of the season, everything has changed. Early in the Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Brady went back to pass and was hit as he made the throw. While Brady has been hit many times before, this hit made him fall to the field awkwardly screaming in pain. He didn’t know it right away but his season was over.
