Matt Ryan wins NFL MVP award after historic season

"So he's the GOAT, him and Peyton, they're the GOATs". But lets get back to Dan Quinn and all he has accomplished this year. The Falcons began the 2015 season 5-0 but then lost six in a row and eight of their final 11. The Falcons finished first in scoring offense and have drawn many similarities to the Greatest Show on Turf (stats might actually be in the Falcons favor). Tevin Coleman, meanwhile, is +2100 while Vic Beasley is +2400, Chris Hogan is +2500 and Mohamed Sanu is +2800.

The Cowboys did a lot of winning on the field this year, and at the NFL Honors awards show, they kept it right on coming.

According to NFL.com, the Falcons QB was also among Saturday's award winners for the Offensive Player of the Year category, besting fellow nominees Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys. Well into the back nine of his professional life, he put up all new career bests across the board. While Brady is gunning for his fifth championship, which would break a tie among quarterbacks with Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw, Ryan is seeking his first. "He was such a huge part of the sports fabric in that town, and for him to be supportive and help me out in the way that he has throughout my career has been really, really nice".

Whatever the reason may be, Ryan has had an insane year. Indianapolis running back Frank Gore won the Art Rooney Sportsmanship award, and Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans was given the Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year award for a one-handed sideline grab against the Falcons.

Defensive Player of the Year went to Khalil Mack of the Oakland Raiders.




Ryan set franchise records in passing yards, touchdowns, completion percentage and passer rating, which was the fifth-highest in National Football League history. The numbers match up with how good of a year he's had. Their offense picked defenses apart, in large part thanks to Matt Ryan.

"I just want to say thank you, this is an incredible honour for me", Ryan, popularly known as "Matty Ice", said in a video acceptance speech for the MVP award.

Defensive Player of the year: Landon Collins.

Ryan doesn't get the same attention as the rest of the stars in the league, and I don't understand why. He had a breakout season and racked up turnovers all year long for the New York Giants. Mack's season included 11 sacks, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and a pick-six as the Raiders reached the playoffs. The pass defense will also get a boost with the expected healthy return of No. 1 cornerback Desmond Trufant, who suffered a season-ending pectoral muscle injury in November. This guy lit it up whenever he had the ball in his hands.

Bosa had a remarkable rookie season after getting selected No. 3 overall in the 2016 Draft.
