Spotlight on Sofi before Super Bowl Sunday

The NFL’s best gathered at Sofi Stadiums YouTube Theater for the NFL Honors show just a few days before the Super Bowl LVI between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams.

Members of both the Bengals and the Rams were honored in the awards ceremony. While Joe Burrow collected his Comeback Player of the Year award via telecast with the rest of his teammates, Cooper Kupp, and Andrew Whitworth collected their awards in person on the NFL’s gala night.

Whitworth gave a rousing speech after receiving the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, and Cooper Kupp won the Offensive Player of the Year award after winning the receiving triple crown.

Watt hands off to Watt

Three time defensive player of the year J.J. Watt got a chance to pass the torch to his brother T.J. after the Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end tied Michale Strahan’s single season sack record with 22.5.

The Offensive Rookie of the Year Ja’Maar Chase was watching with along side Burrow at the Bengals watch party, while the Defensive Rookie of the Year Micah Parsons was the unanimous selection after a fantastic debut season.

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel was named the NFL’s Coach of the Year after leading his team to a top seed in the AFC in a season where he was without the league’s most dominate player for half the season.

Justin Tucker’s record-breaking, game-winning 66 yard field goal was highlighted as the 2021 Moment of the Year, but the moment of the night was Aaron Rodgers being called to stage to collect his fourth NFL MVP award.

Rodgers goes back-to-back, but will he be back in GB?

There was a point in time during the preseason when Rodgers’ future looked bleak in Green Bay, but the Super Bowl Champion stayed in the Frozen Tundra and defended his MVP from last year.

Rodgers passed for 4,115, 37 touchdowns and four interceptions while leading the Packers to a one seed in the NFC.

After the ceremony Rodgers left plenty of reason to question his future again this offseason telling NFL Network, “I’ve got some decisions to make, for sure.” The four time MVP went on to say, “I’ve had good conversations with Green Bay, I’ll do some contemplating and make a decision pretty quick.”
