The only people who shouldn't have the New
NFL power rankings are those who didn't have the Patriots at No. 1 a week ago. New England was on the Bye in Week 10 Irv Smith Jr. Jersey , and that the Patriots didn't take the field over the weekend is no reason to drop them in such lists. Quarterback Tom Brady has found his groove after a slow start to the campaign, and he and his teammates had an extra week to celebrate the fact that they are the best team in the AFC halfway through the year.What is the biggest NFL news following the second weekend of November? The Cleveland Browns – yes, those Cleveland Browns – are alone in first place in the AFC North for the first time in nearly two decades. Brian Hoyer may not be a star quarterback who produces spectacular statistics, but he is playing well enough to lead the Browns to wins. The Cleveland defense has found its form, and the Browns should, barring unforeseeable setbacks Alexander Mattison Jersey , compete for a playoff spot up through the holiday season.The scariest team may very well be the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay has thus far gone perfect at home, and Aaron Rodgers is posting numbers worthy of Most Valuable Player honors. The Detroit Lions currently sit atop the NFC North standings, but that could change over the next several weeks if the Lions are unable to avoid a late-season collapse. Nobody wants to go to Lambeau Field and take on Rodgers and the Packers right now.Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears have become the anti-Packers as of late. Quarterback Jay Cutler is not earning the massive pay raise he received from the club, and both Brady and Rodgers have torched a Chicago defense that has, at times Dru Samia Jersey , seemed to phone-in games. There are whispers that the Bears, the New York Jets and the New York Giants will all be looking for new head coaches come January. None of those look like desirable gigs this fall, as each of those teams have glaring holes on their rosters. It takes years of hard work to get to the NFL. Most players' careers start even before they get into high school. They build upon a lifetime of mental and physical preparation just in the hopes that they’ll be able to make a name for themselves and get noticed by a good college. From there, they must somehow distinguish themselves from the best collegiate athletes in the country. Then, and only then, can they even have a hair of a chance of making an NFL roster. The good news is that if they somehow make it to that point Daniel Jones Jersey , then surely everyone will remember their names.Only, that isn’t always the case. There are some NFL players who make it to the big show, make a name for themselves, and still manage to become overlooked even while they are still active players. How, exactly, that happens can be attributed to a few things. Most of the time Dexter Lawrence Jersey , you can chalk it up to a decrease in performance or a move to a smaller market team. Sometimes, however, a player manages to stay in the league for so long that fans simply can’t believe it. Whatever the reason, these are the 15 NFL players that you didn’t realize were still active.
