This weekend, the NFL handed out its annual awards at the virtual NFL Honors ceremony. The MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Offensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and many other awards were given out.
In the biggest award of the night, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers picked up his third NFL MVP Award.
When it came to rookies, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert picked up the Offensive Rookie of the Year award after throwing for the most yards by a rookie in a single NFL season.
On the defensive side of the ball, Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald was named Defensive Player of the year, but many believe Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker TJ Watt, who received the Deacon Jones Award, was robbed.
Did your favorite player earn an honor?
