DaRon Bland set a new NFL record for most pick-sixes in a single season (5) with only 11 games gone and it would be a travesty if he doesn’t win the award. Bland, 24, a fifth round pick in 2022 by the Dallas Cowboys was more-or-less in the shadows of teammate Trevon Diggs, who himself had a huge year for interceptions.

With the league leading seven interceptions and five returned for a touchdown, only CeeDee Lamb (7) has more TD receptions than his defensive partner. That’s mad! There have been calls for the DPOY to be either Myles Garrett, T.J Watt, and even DaRon’s teammate Micah Parsons, but for once, the DPOY should be someone who not just makes tackles, but turns over possession for the offence to strive.

Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
