The 2021 NFL season has barely even begun, and we are already starting to see some players who look to dominate the stats.
Brady has been ageless, Lamar has been inspiring, Daniel Jones fleet footed, and Kyler Murray has just been sublime.
Let’s take a look at some of the top players to pop their heads up thus far this season, in our way too early ‘Top 5 QBs’ predictor.
It is rumoured that the fabled fountain of youth is somewhere in Florida after being discovered by Ponce de Leon.
Given that the way that TB12 and company have been playing thus far this season, it’s safe to say that the Bucs may have found that fountain.
Boasting 9 touchdowns in only 2 games of the season, Brady is on target to have one of his best years yet.
Adding to this is that new, mental health smile that Tommy wears in every interview.
Unlike during his days on the Pats, Brady actually looks like he wants to be there, and is having fun.
That’s a huge motivator to his O line and rest of the team, as they get to watch an old man playing a game that he loves.
Here’s his Insta if you want to help spread his love.
If Brady & Gronk keep connecting like they have been, Brady and the Bucs should be a shoo-in to make the final 4 of the 2021 NFL season.
Oh what the wonders of switching teams will do to a man.
After a long suffering spell at the Lions with their shaky offensive line, Matthew Stafford has finally moved on to his forever team.
Matt impressed with a definitive week 1 beatdown of the Bears, followed up by a tough, but inspired win against the frustrated Colts.
Stafford has quickly found the hands of Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee, as he looks to turn the team into contenders after struggling under the arm of Goff.
Just like Brady took a few games to get the Bucs going last year, it might be a few more weeks before we see the Rams in full punishing mode, as they look to find their feet in the season.
Sorry, did you say Derek Carr?
Yep, this Las Vegas gunslinger has been lighting up the league early in the 2021 season, with wins over the Ravens and Steelers to solidify their status as ‘scary’ for upcoming opponents.
Despite being bounced around in these contests, Carr is leading the league in passing this far, and it isn’t even close.
Chucking for over 800 yards, Carr has been spreading the ball like peanut butter to his whole host of receivers and the big-balling Darren Waller.
Critics are quick to predict the imminent downfall of the Raiders, ignoring the fact that they handled both AFC contenders quite easily.
Losing Josh Jacobs in week 2 put a lot more pressure on Carr’s battered body, but his competitiveness has shone like a bright light on the strip.
Do you smell that?
It’s Russ cooking in the kitchen, and things are starting to heat up.
Wilson has been peppering Tyler Lockett with deep balls, while feeding the beast that is DK.
Despite a tough second half in week 2, Russ has continued to pour on the points, adding 5 touchdowns to his career tally in 2021.
What’s even more impressive is that Wilson has zero interceptions thus far this season, something even Aaron Rodgers can’t boast about.
The Seahawks often have mid-season break downs piled on by injuries, so we will have to see how chef Wilson is able to keep his kitchen cooking.
Until then, the aroma in Seattle smells nice!
If good things come in small packages, then the Arizona Cardinals are sitting on one of the best small packages in the NFL.
Kyler Murray led his team to another dramatic victory in week 2, solidifying his status as a top NFL MVP candidate.
Despite dropping out of MVP the race last season due to injury, Kyler (+750) is now pipped amongst Tom Brady (+750), and just behind Mahomes to snag the title this season.
He leads the Cardinals into week 3 as 7.5-point favourites against the Jaguars.
If Arizona takes home another win, expect Kyler Murray’s MVP odds to get even better.
With upcoming games against the 49ers, Rams and Browns, the Cardinals and Kyler will be tested every week.
Unlike like last season however, Murray has more speedster receivers, more confidence and JJ Watt.
That’s it for our top 5, is there anyone that you think we missed on the list?
Don’t forget, we have games coming to London soon, so watch this space for all the big NFL in London news .
