a few days from Super Bowl LVI, the NFL held its traditional gala. The NFL Honorswithin the framework of the great match, took place in the hollywood theaterto one side of the sofi stadiumand from there they awarded the best players of the season. Aaron Rodgersquarterback for the Green Bay Packers, won the award as Most valuable Player, the fourth of his career. The 37 touchdowns for just four interceptions and the 4,115 yards were decisive for the election, although surely the player would have exchanged the recognition for a title that he continues to deny himself.

The awards began with an open secret, with T. J. Watt as the first laureate. The Steelers player took the award for Defensive of the Year. His 22.5 quarterback sacks were decisive. The moment was emotional because it was his brother JJ Watt who was in charge of making him known.
How could it be otherwise? cooper kupp, receiver of the Rams, took the recognition as Offensive of the year. Los Angeles number 10 ended with the triple crown; that is, he established himself as the leader in receptions, yards and touchdowns, with 145, 1,947 and 16. Kupp is still looking to win the Super Bowl.

On offense, it was Ja’Marr Chase, catcher for the Bengals, the recipient of the award. Chase had an immediate impact for the AFC champion team, adding 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns, numbers that allowed Cincinnati to get into the fight for the title.
mike vabel, leader of the Titans, was chosen as the coach of the year. Despite significant injuries, the coach led his team to finish as the top seed in the AFC, with a 12-5 record. In four years with Tennessee, Vrabel has always managed to finish with a winning record, the award is a recognition of his efforts.
