Ryan, Prescott big award winners
Atlanta Falcons star Matt Ryan was honoured with three awards on Saturday, including NFL MVP.
The last time the NFL MVP won the Super Bowl in the same season was in 2000, when Kurt Warner went on to be Super Bowl MVP while leading the St Louis Rams to a championship.
Ryan is hoping he can do this year what Cam Newton could not in 2016.
He was honoured Saturday with three awards, including the 2016 NFL MVP, the night before he will lead the Falcons against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.
Ryan, who did not attend the awards show at the Wortham Theater Center in Houston, was also named the FedEx Air Player of the Year and the Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year.
Oakland Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack was the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year.
While many expected Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott to be named the league's top offensive rookie, that honour went to his team-mate.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was the league's Offensive Rookie of the Year after previously being selected by fans as the Pepsi Rookie of the Year.
San Diego Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa was the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Elliott was named the FedEx Ground Player of the Year after leading the league in rushing this season.
For just the third time in 47 years, two men shared the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, as New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald were honoured as co-recipients.
