Falcons QB Matt Ryan named 2016 NFL MVP over Packers' Aaron Rodgers

Falcons QB Matt Ryan named 2016 NFL MVP over Packers' Aaron Rodgers”

Ryan, who was not at the awards show since he was preparing to face Brady and the Patriots in Super Bowl 51 on Sunday, was also named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year. That also happens to be the a year ago a player won the NFL MVP and the Super Bowl in the same season, when Kurt Warner did so with the Rams.

Eliott captured the FedEx Ground Player of the Year Award while Matt Ryan took FedEx's Air Player of the Year honors.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been awarded the AP MVP Award, edging out Tom Brady by 15 votes.

MVP: Sticking with the Falcons here, although I believe this is one of the most obvious choices for awards this year (other than offensive rookie of year, we'll get there). Ryan finished the season with 4,944 yards passing and 38 touchdowns with just seven interceptions on 373-of-534 completed passes.

European countries sometimes complained that President Obama neglected them in favor of a focus on Asia. It's not acceptable for the global community if America shirks responsibility [for taking in refugees].

Warner isn't downplaying Ryan's remarkable season. But Brady led the charge in the final minute to set up a 48-yard field goal for the win.

On Saturday night at Wortham Theater Center, Matt Ryan deserved to win the MVP over all the other candidates. Nelson tore his ACL past year, missing the entire season. Hogan earned Brady's trust in the playoffs (275 yards in two games) and will be the primary receiver once again against the Falcons.

Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, returning from a devastating knee injury, was selected Comeback Player of the Year.

Altria spokesman Steve Callahan said "We appreciate our consumers' patience and loyalty while we work through this matter". Wholesalers and retailers are being instructed by the company to separate the recalled products from their inventories.

Matt Ryan and the Dallas Cowboys were big winners Saturday night.

Ryan also won the offensive player of the year title at the NFL Honours evening. Quinn said Thursday that the team's offense was in place, but the new coordinator surely will have his own style and ideas, and he will have to work quickly to develop rapport with MVP-winning quarterback Matt Ryan. His ability to pass on the move and do it in an accurate fashion, all of that's gotten much better.

"He's at it all year round, he's shown how to take care of yourself and approach this in the right way so you can play for a long time and play at a high level for a long time".

This week in The Players' Tribune, Vick revealed he roots for the Falcons and characterizes his relationship with Ryan as "good friendship". He started every game and completed 69.9 percent of his throws for a 117.1 passer rating, the fifth-highest in a season in National Football League history.
