Tom Brady wins his third NFL regular season MVP award

The Rams won their first NFC West title since 2003, and second-year quarterback Jared Goff improved exponentially under McVay's guidance.

It was the 10th time in the past 11 seasons that a quarterback won the award, a streak broken only by Adrian Peterson in 2012. He earned his fourth Pro Bowl appearance in as many seasons and third consecutive first-team All-Pro selection.

Kamara had just 120 carries all year, but his 6.1 yards-per-carry average led all running backs by more than a full yard.

In a season where unpredictability was a tandem partner to the remarkable season that was the 2017 Los Angeles Rams, such unpredictability could follow some awards tonight during the NFL Honors show. In winning defensive honors, Donald's 23 votes beat out Calais Campbell (17 votes) and Chandler Jones (5 votes).

Kamara received 28 votes, edging Kansas City's Kareem Hunt (21). Houston rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, despite playing in only seven games before a season-ending knee injury, got the other vote.

Finally, the Saints also made some history on Saturday when they swept the Rookie of the Year awards. The Rams traded up to draft Goff with the No. 1 pick in 2016, but he didn't start until midway through his rookie campaign. Lattimore got 45 votes, far ahead of Buffalo CB Tra'Davious White with four and San Francisco LB Reuben Foster got one.

The Super Bowl, Brought To You By Taxpayers
Television viewership reached record lows throughout the year after months of protesting players and political controversies. But a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll suggests that clouds are gathering on the horizon for the NFL .


Los Angeles kicked off its roster rebuild by signing star left tackle Andrew Whitworth, center John Sullivan, and receiver Robert Woods in free agency.

Allen missed half of the 2015 season with a kidney issue, then was lost in the 2016 season opener with a torn right ACL.

The NFL's official Twitter account immediately posted a graphic congratulating coach McVay, who is the youngest head coach in NFL history. He finished in the top 10 in yards and touchdowns, and he also had the fifth-best passer rating in the league. He easily outdistanced Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum, who had eight.

The seventh annual NFL Honors was hosted by Rob Riggle, who went after everyone.

The league's foundation will donate $25,000 in Kuechly's name to the charity of his choice.
