It’s that time of the NFL season when the wheat is separated from the chaff. Over the next couple of weeks, we can expect to have a much clearer picture of who the legit contenders are and who’s just pretending as the cream rises to the top.A wild, unpredictable start to 2017 season may be the result of players having a little more rust to shake off than usual as many teams elected to limit preseason reps for their starters even more than in previous years.There’s been plenty of surprises already this season, as a result, starting with the Chiefs week-one shellacking of the Patriots in Foxborough. The upstart Los Angeles Rams (3-1) look to take a two-game lead over the Seahawks the in the NFC West. The Oakland Raiders (2-2), everyone’s favorite in the AFC West at the start of the season, need a win on Sunday to stay abreast of undefeated Kansas City and a rejuvenated Denver Broncos (3-1). Someone is guaranteed to be 0-5 and all but eliminated from the post-season when the Chargers face the Giants at MetLife.W
