Iowa was outgained by Miami University 424 yards to 404 yards, ran 20 fewer plays and its offense had the ball nearly 13 minutes less than the RedHawks last Saturday in the season opener. Brandon McCarthy Jersey .And yet the 16th-ranked Hawkeyes came out comfortably on top, scoring early and often in a 45-21 victory at Kinnick Stadium.Iowa remains at home this weekend and hopes to get off to a 2-0 start when it faces in-state rival Iowa State on Saturday night (7:30 p.m., Big Ten Network) before a sellout crowd in another nonconference game. The Cyclones come in 0-1 after losing 25-20 at home to FCS opponent Northern Iowa last Saturday in coach Matt Campbells first game as Cyclones coach.The Hawkeyes defeated the Cyclones 31-17 last year in Ames, but Iowa State has won three of the last five meetings in the series, including its last two visits to Iowa City.One guarantee is there will be a lot of talk border to border about the game, said Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, who Tuesday received a contract extension through the 2026 season and a raise from $4.075 million to $4.5 million annually. And thats one of the great things about playing an instate rival like this. Its good for the entire state of Iowa.Campbell gets his first taste of the intense intrastate CyHawk series. As Toledos coach before he took the Iowa State job, he experienced a similar rivalry with Bowling Green, located 20 miles down the road.I think the key is you have to stay within yourself, Campbell said. Its like very other football game, where the team that take care of the football, the team that manages throughout the football game, is the team thats going to have success.I think our kids know that, and unfortunately, we had to learn a really valuable lesson again in that last Saturday, but its a lesson thats really valuable for us going forward.The statistics from Iowas opener were skewed because the offense was so efficient and the defense created turnovers that resulted in scores.The Hawkeyes burst out to a 21-0 lead after one quarter, led 28-7 at the half and were up 35-7 early in the third quarter. Miami came back with two touchdowns to close the gap, but Iowa responded with the games final two scores.When Iowa did have the ball, the offense overpowered Miamis defense. The 1-2 punch of running backs Akrum Wadley and LeShun Daniels helped the Hawkeyes amass 212 yards on the ground for a 7.3-yard average per carry. Wadley and Daniels each scored two rushing touchdowns in the first half and finished with 121 yards and 83 yards on the ground, respectively.The Hawkeyes no doubt will be looking for more of the same on Saturday against an Iowa State defense that gave up 232 yards rushing against Northern Iowa.That line weve got -- James Daniels, (Sean) Welsh, Ike (Boettger) leading the way -- anybody could run behind them, Wadley said.Iowas defense didnt measure up to its offense against the RedHawks, allowing Miami to march 75, 74 and 75 yards for its touchdowns and gain 266 yards through the air. Part of the RedHawks offensive success could be attributable to the defense being on the field so much of the day and also in part because middle linebacker Josey Jewell, last years leading tackler, was ejected early in the first quarter after a targeting penalty.Losing Josey kind of hurt us on the defensive side, especially in the run game, Iowa cornerback Desmond King said. They were averaging six and seven yards a carry on first down, so it put our defense in a tough position.Whatever the case -- and Ferentz wasnt making excuses -- the Iowa defense will be out to clean up their performance this week while facing Iowa States All-Big 12 running back Mike Warren, who rushed for 1,339 yards in 2015. Cyclones quarterback Joel Lanning completed 18 of 28 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions against Northern Iowa.It looked a little bit like we were overthinking, Ferentz said. We werent as aggressive as a result of that, playing the run, but were going to have to do a better job there.The run defense, in particular, concerns Ferentz going into week two.What it boils down to is us trying to play a better game than we played (Saturday), he said. Hopefully, you make that improvement week one to week two and line up as a better football team on Saturday.Redshirt freshman defensive end Anthony Nelson was a pleasant surprise in the opener with 2 1/2 sacks, six tackles and two forced fumbles. His contributions could be needed again this week with defensive end Parker Hesse questionable because of a hamstring injury.The Hawkeyes are hoping oft-injured wide receiver Jay Scheel is able to play this week. He sat out the opener because of injury concerns.Jay, I think he has a chance, Ferentz said. Hes moving closer. Atlanta Braves Jerseys . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. Deion Sanders Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. We treat the first split of any season like its the most important stretch of the year. Week 1 of the NFL season feels more important than Week 7, a players first start feels more important than his fifth, and outside of perhaps the final quarter of the year, the first quarter of the season even feels most meaningful -- still-hopeful fantasy owners nod -- even if its all but forgotten by the time December rolls around.I like giving out awards for each quarter of the season for a couple of reasons. One, handing out awards is fun. That part is easy. The other reason is that its useful to look back and view perception at a given moment in time. When I wrote this column after four weeks last year, I gave Aaron Rodgers the MVP award in the middle of what looked to be another dominant season. Rodgers had 11 touchdowns against no picks then. He threw 20 touchdowns against eight picks in the ensuing 12 games.With that in mind, Ive gone through and made my picks for the seven key NFL awards through the first four games of the season. These are the players I would pick given the way the league has voted for these awards in years past; in other words, even if I think Joe Thomas deserves Offensive Player of the Year, Im not going to pick him because the league doesnt value offensive linemen for awards that way. These also arent the players I necessarily think will win these awards at the end of the year, but the players who have earned it as of right now for the first four weeks of the season.Lets start with a player who I have to admit I had written off in my head, which makes him a perfect candidate for the trophy hes receiving ...Comeback Player of the Year: Jimmy Graham, TE, SeahawksThis seems like a straightforward award to start. Little was expected from Graham after he tore his patellar tendon on Nov. 29 last year, an injury that has dramatically impacted careers more than any other injury in years past. Victor Cruz, who has made a modest return from his own patellar tear this season, took nearly two full years to recover from his injury and the subsequent problems that popped up during his rehab.And yet, after a slow start, Graham has posted consecutive 100-yard games in the past two contests for Seattle. Thats as many as he mustered across 27 games in 2014 and 2015 combined, and the first time he has hit triple digits in consecutive weeks since a stretch of four such games in September 2013. There are still plenty of comebacks on their way, and I could see arguments for Cruz or even Melvin Gordon, but Grahams return to form this soon after a patellar tear is unprecedented.Defensive Rookie of the Year: Jalen Ramsey, CB, JaguarsIt was an ugly first month of the year for debuting defenders. Joey Bosa, the leagues top-drafted defensive player, never suited up, one of four first-round defenders to miss the first four games because of injury. Players such as Robert Nkemdiche, Karl Joseph?and Myles Jack struggled to get on the field for defensive snaps for part or all of the month, while Eli Apple and DeVondre Campbell were sidelined with injuries before the month was finished. Just eight rookies have suited up for 200 defensive snaps or more through four games.As a result, while the Offensive Rookie of the Year award might be the toughest choice to make, this one is the easiest. With apologies to Xavien Howard, the clear choice is Ramsey. While he has drawn headlines for feuding with Steve Smith Sr., Ramsey has been the best player on the much-improved Jaguars defense through four weeks. (The Jags are 11th in defensive DVOA after finishing 26th, 20th, 28th and 28th over the past four seasons.) Although he initially seemed to figure in the Jacksonville lineup as a slot corner when teams came out with an extra wide receiver, the fourth overall pick has played every snap each of the past three weeks. When Prince Amukamara returned from an injury last week, it was expensive free agent Davon House who went to the bench, not Ramsey. For all the veterans Jacksonville has imported, its the young guns -- Ramsey, fellow rookie Yannick Ngakoue, Dante Fowler Jr. and Telvin Smith -- who currently stand out for the Jags.Offensive Rookie of the Year: Dak Prescott, QB, CowboysOh boy. This one isnt fair. Linemen have no hope of winning this award, sadly, but Joe Thuney and Cody Whitehair have been effective interior linemen from the jump. Sterling Shepard has been a promising second banana to Odell Beckham Jr. Will Fuller has been even better, terrifying teams who are otherwise occupied with DeAndre Hopkins with his speed and making the most of the space he subsequently has been afforded. Hes on pace for nearly 1,300 receiving yards. Fuller has a return touchdown, but Tyreek Hill might already be one of the best return men in football.And yet, all of those guys arent even close. Its a three-person race right now between Prescott, his teammate Ezekiel Elliott?and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. I think you could make a case for and against each of the three candidates, so lets do that, starting with Elliott. Dallas first-round pick leads the league in rushing yards with 412; after a couple of slow performances to start the season and a costly fumble against Washington, he has produced games with 138 and 140 rushing yards in consecutive weeks. And while the argument was always going to be that Elliott would be a product of his offensive line, those two big games have come without star left tackle Tyron Smith, and starting guard Lael Collins missed Week 4 before going on injured reserve.But I cant bring myself to pick a running back -- even an excellent one -- over a quarterback playing at a high level. That leaves Wentz and Prescott. Wentz has been steady as can be over his first three starts, avoiding turnovers altogether while taking sacks on just 3.8 percent of his dropbacks. Wentzs opponent-adjusted QBR of 67.7 is eighth in the league, and his numbers would look even better if the former North Dakota State stars receivers would offer any help: 6.9 percent of Wentzs passes have been dropped, the second-highest rate in the league behind Matthew Stafford.At the same time, though, Wentz is excelling in the same low-risk system Alex Smith enjoyed in Kansas City. His average pass has traveled just 7.0 yards in the air, 26th in the league. His receivers are second in terms of yards after catch, which hasnt been a repeatable skill for quarterbacks, suggesting its mostly random. The best pass defense he has played through three weeks is that of the Bears, who are 12th in DVOA. Wentz is doing an excellent job, and his ability to read defenses and quickly find his hot receiver for easy short-to-intermediate gains is going to ensure a high floor.Prescott has just been a tiny bit better, especially when you consider that he has been without his franchise left tackle for two games and was missing Dez Bryant last week. I was concerned that Prescott was going to be a checkdown artist given how he played in the preseason, but the fourth-rounder has been able to throw downfield once the Cowboys started creating deeper routes for him over the middle of the field. QBR isnt a be-all, end-all statistic (even before a small sample), but it tries to encapsulate all that a QB does, and Prescott is 16.2 points ahead of Wentz and third in the NFL so far this season.Even if you want to argue that Wentz has narrowly been the better passer this season -- and passer rating and NY/A suggest that he has been -- Prescott has added far more value as a runner (which QBBR measures). Hank Aaron Jersey. . Excluding kneel-downs, Wentzs six carries have produced 27 yards, but with as many fumbles as first downs (one of each). Prescott has carried the ball nine times for 64 yards, and those runs have produced six first downs and two touchdowns without any fumbles. In a close fight, thats just enough to push the needle Prescotts way.Coach of the Year: Gary Kubiak, BroncosI wouldnt blame anybody for picking Mike Zimmer here, and theres an argument for Doug Pederson, who has pushed Philadelphia forward after the end of the Chip Kelly era. Theyve all been great. I think were also collectively underestimating what Kubiak has done, though. Yes, Pederson has had to bring along a rookie quarterback, and Zimmer has built a suffocating defense and won with Sam Bradford, who is playing the best football of his career.Kubiak is winning with Trevor Siemian at quarterback. Wentz was the second overall pick. Siemian was the 250th. The Broncos also have beaten a pair of playoff teams in the Panthers and Bengals, and while they did win it all last year, Denver is doing this without eight of the players who started in the Super Bowl, nine if you include the injured DeMarcus Ware. Some will be biased against Kubiak because of how his time in Houston came to a close, but the former Broncos backup deserves credit for what hes doing with a team in transition right now.Defensive Player of the Year: Von Miller, BroncosKeeping the Broncos theme going, Miller seems like the obvious choice as Defensive Player of the Year after four games with J.J. Watts reign sadly coming to an end. Its fair to say that he is surrounded by great players in Denver, but Miller also is the most productive Bronco of all. He leads the league in sacks (5.5), is tied for third in knockdowns (eight), and has a forced fumble for good measure. And if there were any argument that Miller might be in part a product of having Ware (and before him Elvis Dumervil) around in the lineup, Miller has produced 4.5 sacks in his three most recent games, during which Ware played a total of 18 snaps.After Miller, theres a pool of players in the discussion. Aaron Donald continues to do Aaron Donald things, leading the league with 12 knockdowns when nobody else has more than nine. He also has four tackles for loss on run plays. Carlos Dunlap has been freakishly effective batting down passes, as he has five and nobody else in the league has more than two. Harrison Smith might attract some attention as the star player on Minnesotas devastating defense. Right now, though, the line starts with Miller.Offensive Player of the Year: Derek Carr, QB, RaidersLast year, Cam Newton won both the AP MVP award and the AP Offensive Player of the Year trophy. On one hand, that makes sense: Of course, if a quarterback is the leagues most valuable player at any position, hes also the leagues most valuable offensive player. At the same time, though, the AP voters have spent most of their time voting for one offensive player as MVP and another one as Offensive Player of the Year. Im going to stick with that.Without getting to my MVP vote quite yet, were left with a few Offensive Player of the Year candidates. The rule for this award, at least with me, is that a running back or a receiver has to be head and shoulders above the competition to overcome the positional value of playing quarterback. The best running back in the league in terms of combining volume and efficiency is probably Isaiah Crowell, but realistically, a running back for the 0-4 Browns isnt winning player of the year. Neither Elliott nor Crowell stand out from the pack.At receiver, Julio Jones is coming off of a 300-yard game and leads the league in receiving yards, but he had just 188 yards in his three previous contests. With 488, Julio is just 6 yards ahead of Marvin Jones and 20 ahead of A.J. Green. Is Julio really outplaying his brethren to the point where he stands out as the best offensive player in football? I dont think that would be an accurate statement. Another 300-yard game, maybe ...So then, it comes down to a quarterback. I think theres an argument for Russell Wilson, given that hes playing behind a porous offensive line and is down to one leg and is still managing to post a passer rating within one point of 100. The downside is that the ankle and knee injuries have extinguished Wilsons ability to run, as he has just 15 rushing attempts for 28 yards this year. What Philip Rivers has been able to accomplish missing as many as the top four targets of his arsenal has been remarkable, as hes posting a 104.5 passer rating with seven touchdowns against one desperate fourth-and-long pick, but he has been doing that for years and never received real consideration for this award. Ben Roethlisberger doesnt have the numbers, and Bradford doesnt have the volume.Which all leaves Carr, who has had a remarkable start to the year. His breakout season was 2015, but Carr is breaking out again this year. His numbers in every notable category -- completion percentage, yards per attempt (and all its variations), interception rate and sack rate -- have improved again this year, in some cases dramatically. (The same guy who was completing 58.1 percent of his passes two years ago is up to 68.1 percent this season.) He has nine touchdowns against just one interception and already led two fourth-quarter comebacks for victories.The best arguments you can make against Carr are that he throws short passes and gets a lot of help. In a way, theyre true. Carrs average pass travels 7.0 yards in the air, no different from Wentzs and below the league average of 7.9 air yards per pass. He also benefits from playing behind a great offensive line, with the combination meaning that Carr has been pressured on just 16.5 percent of his passes this year. Only Drew Brees has been bothered less frequently. The flip side of that argument, though, is that Carr has gotten no help from his defense, which has allowed 39 points in the fourth quarter this season and gave up more than 500 yards in each of the first two games. He has been the second-most productive quarterback in the league in 2016.Most Valuable Player: Matt Ryan, QB, FalconsCarr just hasnt been Matt Ryan, who leads the league in every meaningful statistical category:You might argue that he wouldnt be atop all these leaderboards without Julio Jones, and maybe thats true. In Week 3, though, when the Saints tried to eliminate Jones and held him to one catch on seven targets, Ryan went 19-of-23 for 224 yards throwing to his other receivers. Ryan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan have generally done a much better job of spreading the ball around this season; Jones has been targeted on 24.3 percent of Ryans passes this year, down from 33.1 percent last year, and thats even with new addition Mohamed Sanu limited by injury.Ryan hasnt been perfect; even last week, I noted how he struggled to find Jones when he was open for those deeper throws, and Ryan included a pick-six with another pass that should have been intercepted by Luke Kuechly. Theres no blow-away candidate this year through four weeks. Ryan, however, is playing the best football weve seen from him since the first month of the 2012 season, when he also was a viable MVP candidate. Falcons fans who reminisce longingly at that 13-3 season have to be excited to see Ryan and their team return to form.
