Falcons QB Matt Ryan named 2016 NFL MVP over Packers' Aaron Rodgers
Feb 06 2017
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.
