The league announced Ryan as the victor of the AP Most Valuable Player award on Saturday night, on the eve of his Super Bowl debut against the Patriots.
As the Falcons prepare to face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, their quarterback, Tom Brady, is also in the conversation for MVP.
But Miller - whose instrumental defensive performance in the Denver Broncos' win over the Carolina Panthers saw him named Super Bowl 50 MVP - is backing Ryan to deliver.
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. Rodgers backed up his comment over those final six games of the regular season; as the Packers did indeed win their final six games, he completed 71% of his passes for 1,667 yards (8.34 yards per attempt) and 15 touchdowns against no interceptions.
"I think his ability to feel comfortable turning his back to the line of scrimmage, partly due to [center] Alex Mack, partly due to the offensive line withstanding their role staying together and carrying back when releasing the ball". Ryan's Falcons earned the second seed in the NFC with an 11-5 record, and rolled their two playoff opponents to get to the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history. "That's when I jumped up off the sofa and started clicking my heels".
Ryan kept the secret to himself, Andrews said, as the team did not want it to get out on social media. Matt isn't the only athletic one in the Ryan clan.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was named the National Football League comeback player of the year for returning from a knee injury that sidelined him for the entire 2015 season to catch 97 passes for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns. Sanu thrived this year in the Shanahan offense with an MVP quarterback throwing to him.
Jordy Nelson claimed Comeback Player of the Year, after scoring 14 touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers.
Jason Garrett of the Cowboys was named Coach of the Year. He finished with more total passing yards than Brady with 4,944 passing yards to Brady's 3,554 along with 38 touchdown passes to Brady's 28.
