As Super Bowl 58 has concluded, let’s see who took home some new trophies.

NFL Honors

Every year a handful of players get to receive awards based on their performances during the season. Let’s take a look at who won these prestigious awards.

Houston Sweeps Rookie of the Year Awards

Starting with Offensive Rookie of the Year, Texan’s Quarterback CJ Stroud took home the award after a stellar season.

He finished top 10 in the league in passing yards, only threw 5 interceptions, and even led the city of Houston to a playoff berth and win.

These awards only count towards the regular season. However, it’s still important to point out that he did all this in his first year of the league.

Defensive Rookie of the Year goes to fellow Texan, Will Anderson Jr.

The defensive end racked up 29 tackles and 7 sacks, which contributed greatly to the Texan’s quick turnaround.

Last year they were a team that only won 3 games. With the help of their rookie stars, they finished the 2023 – 2024 NFL season with a record of 10 – 7.

As captured in this X video, both players are excited for one another as they win their respective awards. The future looks bright in Houston as they sweep the Rookie of the Year awards, a repeat of last year with the New York Jets.

Cleveland takes home a lot of new awards

Next up, Cleveland Browns Quarterback Joe Flacco won this year’s Comeback Player of the Year. After Browns starting Quarterback Deshaun Watson ended the season early with an injury, it seemed like they were in no man’s land. After he lost in his first start from the backup position, he went on to win 4 games for Cleveland and keep them in the playoff race.

He did this while also putting up impressive stats as in all of his wins, he put up more than 300 yards throwing the football. The 39 year old Quarterback put the league on notice and showed that he still has some gas left in the tank, earning him the award, the first in his career.

Joe Flacco couldn’t have accomplished this impressive feat all on his own. He needed a coach who knew how to play to his strengths and to scheme things well.

This is why Browns Head Coach Kevin Stefanski won Coach of the Year, for the second time in his career. Not only did he make things simple for his veteran backup, he led this team to the playoffs through a rocky season. Deshaun Watson suffered a season ending injury but so did Nick Chubb, starting running back and a huge part of their offense.

Kevin Stefanski won this award for keeping the team coordinated through difficult times and helping lead them to an 11 – 6 season.

The Cleveland Browns had a field day at the NFL Honors as the Defensive Player of the Year award goes to Myles Garrett.

Browns defensive end put an exclamation point on the NFL’s best defense, drawing so much attention and being a game-wrecker overall. While he may not have been the sack leader, he helped anchor the best defense in the league and that’s enough to win the award.

Stellar Offensive Players

Moving onto the Offensive Player of the Year, 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey ran away with the award after a spectacular season.

He was a big part of why San Franciso made it to the Super Bowl and even led the NFL in rushing yards. His electric playstyle earned him 14 touchdowns through the ground and 7 through the air. This dynamic running back allowed the Niners to hand the ball off to him and let him work in space. They could also throw the ball to him and let blockers help clear his path. Clearly, McCaffrey was vital to their success and deserved this award.

Finally, the Most Valuable Player for the 2023 – 2024 NFL season was none other than Raven’s Quarterback Lamar Jackson!

Lamar Jackson led his team to the first seed in the AFC and did so with ease. He had 24 touchdowns through the air and 5 using his legs, amassing 4,499 total yards of offense. He won his first MVP during the 2019 season. Now, he has become just the 11th player of all time to win two MVP trophies.

Jackson led his team to multiple blowout wins. This included a 56 – 19 win over the Miami Dolphins to close out the season. They hope to repeat this success with Jackson for many years to come.

Super Bowl 58

As the confetti fell, it was Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs who stood victorious in Super Bowl 58. They won back-to-back championships, which hasn’t been done in 20 years! The last team to accomplish this feat was Tom Brady and the New England Patriots back in 2003 – 2004.

This can be the start of a dynasty for Kansas City. They have aspirations to do what no NFL team has done before: win 3 championships in a row.

The final score was 25 – 22 and it even went to overtime! This was the 7th longest game in NFL history and it had two record-breaking kicks!

Patrick Mahomes gets his third Super Bowl as well as his third Super Bowl MVP, and he’s only 28! He did throw an interception, but he also threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns, as well as running for 66 yards in critical moments.
