Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been voted the 2014 AP NFL MVP with 31 first-place votes.
J.J. Watt – Houston Texans defensive end wins Defensive Player of the Year
DeMarco Murray – Dallas Cowboys running back wins Offensive Player of the Year
Aaron Donald – St. Louis Rams defensive tackle wins Defensive Rookie of the Year
The NFL MVP has been revealed, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has taken home the second prestigious award of his career.
The Packers quarterback had a remarkable season with 4,381 yards to go with 38 touchdown passes and five interceptions for a 112.1 rating.
Rodgers’ best performance came in a 55-14 win over the Chicago Bears when he threw a whopping six touchdown passes in the first half.
The two-time MVP showed incredible toughness at the end of the season when he suffered a calf injury and led the Packers to their fourth consecutive NFC North title with a win over the Detroit Lions in Week 17.
After a first-round bye, Rodgers led the Packers to a playoff comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys despite having the same injury. Unfortunately, the Packers’ season was cut short by the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship.
Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray were beaten out by Rodgers, who also won the FedEx Air Player of the Year award.
Rodgers received 31 votes while Watt got 13. Murray and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo each received two.
