NFL Awards Given Out, Eagles to Franchise Foles, Lakers Lose to Warriors as Trouble Brews

Grace Higgins | February 3rd, 2019

Week after week, Pat Mahomes was the star of the NFL season. From seemingly nowhere, the former Texas A&M quarterback has become the most exciting player in the league to watch, and his season was rewarded on Saturday night as he was named NFL MVP. In fact, the voting wasn’t even close. In a season where he threw for 50 touchdowns and over 5,000 yards, Mahomes also was the runaway choice for Offensive Player of the Year. He collected 41 votes to Drew Brees’ nine in the MVP race, showing just how good he was and how respected by his peers and the media he is. Defensive Player of the Year went to a familiar face, with Aaron Donald winning it for the second year in a row. He also won the award in a landslide after leading the L.A. Rams to the Super Bowl with a league-high 20.5 sacks. He joins fine company in winning the award twice in a row, joining a list of just two: L.T. Lawrence Taylor and J.J. Watt. Andrew Luck won the Comeback Player of the Year after leading the Indianapolis Colts to the playoffs after missing all of 2017. Chicago Bears’ coach Matt Nagy won Coach of the Year honors and his former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio took Assistant Coach of the Year as well.
