First and 10: We’re halfway home

Time flies when you’re having fun, and the 2011 NFL regular season is already half over. With that in mind, we asked eight NFL.com and NFL Network analysts for their award winners at the halfway point and revised predictions for the postseason, and the results are in. Also, Steve Wyche handicaps the path to the playoffs for high-profile and upstart teams alike, our panel of experts presents their choices for the biggest story of the season so far, and we’ve got highlights of our picks for the five best catches of the year.

Here’s what else is on tap for Wednesday:

  • Mike Shana-tan, the Baltimore Ravens’ unhealthy obsession with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the New England Patriots’ long, slow decline are just a few of Dave Dameshek‘s deserving targets in the latest Shame Report.
  • Bucs cornerback Ronde Barber and Texans receiver Derrick Mason have tangled a few times in their day. Watch NFL Network’s “Around The League Live” Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET to see these two veterans of the NFL wars bat around the hot topics of the day.
  • Tune into NFL Network Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET for an enhanced replay of Monday night’s back-and-forth affair between the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles.
  • Get an exclusive first look at the next episode of “A Football
    Life,” which chronicles the one-of-a-kind life of legendary Raiders owner Al
    Davis
    . The full NFL Films documentary airs Friday night on NFL Network.
