How Bout Them Cowboys?! Team wins big at NFL Honors

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan got the Falcons into winning mode, taking league MVP honors as well as being named the AP offensive player of the year.

Unsurprisingly, Ryan also picked up the Offensive Player of the Year award. Ryan received 25 votes, 15 more than Brady with Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr receiving six votes apiece followed by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' two votes and one for Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. His transformation this year has been incredible, and he and his offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan (who won National Football League assistant coach of the year) should be given credit. Ryan is a deserving victor after setting an NFL-record in yards per attempt (min. 350 attempts) and the 5th-best passer rating in NFL history en route to leading one of the top 10 most productive offenses in NFL history, while also carrying one of the worst defenses in the league. Ryan averaged just over nine yards per pass, the highest rate ever for a quarterback with more than 400 completions in a season.

Although the veteran quarterback and his sidekick in Julio Jones are one of the best QB-WR duos in the NFL, Ryan has spread the auxiliary wealth around this season.

At the end of last season, the Atlanta Falcons finished 8-8.

A lot has been said this year in MVP conversations about how unbelievable Rodgers was down the stretch of the regular season. Either Brady will stand alone with five titles, or his friend Ryan will have the ultimate ending to a redemptive season. Can Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson take home the Comeback Player of the Year award? If you think there is one, you just haven't been paying close enough attention.

"He deserves it just as much as I do from his yards, his catches", Prescott said. "Matt's understanding of the system is certainly greater than it was in year one".

"Matt is having an incredible year".

The team was moving on, and the Falcons selected Ryan as the third overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

"None of us do what we do on behalf of charity or in our communities to get recognized", Manning added. The team's 13-3 record was the best of any team with Garrett as a head coach.
