No need to wait for Super Bowl 52.
The NFL’s biggest showdown of the 2017 season already has kicked off. Jerry Jones vs. Roger Goodell.
Even before Thursday, there was a lot of pressure on Wilson to come through in high-scoring affairs. Take him outdueling Deshaun Watson in Week 8, for example. Although he didn’t have his best stuff in Week 9 in the loss to Washington, Wilson made the big plays at the end that the defense couldn’t.
Now without Sherman, Wilson needs to be even more of a wizard every week. There is more of a burden on him to keep things together as an on-field leader.

Some nominations are purely specialists capable of helping in one or two categories, while others deliver more diverse and important statistical offerings.
