For the second time, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has won the NFL’s MVP award, as Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk writes.
Rodgers, who won the MVP trophy in 2011, completed 341 of 520 passes for 4,381 yards in 2014. The 31-year-old threw for 38 touchdowns on the year while getting picked off just five times. Rodgers’ stellar touchdown-to-interception ratio was the fifth-best in NFL history and good for second among quarterbacks with at least 30 touchdown passes. No. 12 led Green Bay to a 12-4 mark this past season, though the Packers fell short in the postseason when they blew a big lead to the Seahawks in the NFC championship game. Rodgers is just the ninth player in history to win multiple MVP trophies.
Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com (on Twitter) notes that J.J. Watt – this year’s DPOY – came in second place with 13 votes. Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray each got two votes. Tom Brady received one vote and, surprisingly, Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner also received an MVP vote.
