Week 9 is in the books, and the NFL’s playoff picture is getting clearer and clearer. Here’s a look at our weekly awards after yet another exciting week of NFL football.

AFC MVP: Charcandrick West

NFC MVP: Jeremy Langford

Week 10 was the week of the backup running back. West and Langford caught fire in their matchups against the Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams, respectively. West gained 69 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries and added 92 yards receiving on three catches, including an incredible 80-yard touchdown catch. Jeremy Langford filled in the Bears’ void at running back incredibly well, rushing for 73 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries and adding 109 yards on seven receptions, adding a touchdown through the air.

Who needs Jamaal Charles or Matt Forte when you have West and Langford? The two players have taken the world of fantasy football by storm, but more importantly, they’ve made solid contributions to their teams in winning efforts throughout the past few weeks. It’s nice to see the backups getting some attention; both of these guys have been lights-out.

Coach of the Week: Jim Caldwell

I’m not quite sure what Jim Caldwell did to inspire his squad’s insane upset victory over the Green Bay Packers, but beating the Pack in Lambeau for the first time since the early 1990’s is good enough for Caldwell to land here. To be frank, this win could’ve saved Caldwell’s job for at least another week. He’s still clearly on the hot seat, as the Lions will likely begin a complete overhaul of both the staff and roster in Detroit.

With the awards handed out, let’s get right into it and take a look at this week’s Power Rankings. If you don’t agree with where your team is ranked, just remember that I purposely ranked them lower than they should be ranked as a personal attack towards you because I don’t like your team. That being said, hit me up on Twitter @HoweNFL if you want to discuss why I ranked your team where I ranked it. Without further ado, let’s get started.
