Unless something rapidly changes between now and the close of the regular season, these NFL truths appear to evident:
1. The four best teams in the sport in no particular order are Green Bay, Seattle, New England, and Denver.
2. Aaron Rodgers is your 2014 NFL MVP.
3. J.J. Watt is your 2014 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
Other than that, mostly everything else is up in the air.
Oh, something else that is evident?
Russell Wilson is building a track record…and I don’t mean on the field.
Late Sunday night, Lions tight end Joseph Fauria tweeted a rather bizarre message about Wilson stealing his girlfriend.
Wilson, who is single after divorcing his wife Ashton during the offseason (which is whole other story), is playing the field. Sorry Joe, but that dude is a defending world champion quarterback at the moment.
The house always wins.
