The Associated Press NFL Awards for the 2010 season will be announced on NFL Network during Super Bowl week, culminating with the MVP on game day, Sunday, Feb. 6. This marks the first time the awards will be showcased on a national network. Each one will be distributed by the AP as it is simultaneously announced on TV.
The award for Comeback Player of the Year will be announced next Monday. Offensive Player of the Year and Coach of the Year will be announced on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year will be announced in a joint showcase on Friday. Defensive Player of the Year will be announced on the eve of the Super Bowl.
The awards are voted on by a 50-person panel of writers who cover the league for the news agency.
“We’re elated to announce AP’s annual pro football honors on the NFL Network in the run up to the Super Bowl,” said AP vice president Lou Ferrara. “This will provide a showcase for the awards after years of building a strong and credible voting system for picking the winners.”
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the favorite to win NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year, while Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is the likely Offensive Rookie of the Year and Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh the expected Defensive Rookie of the Year. The Defensive Player of the Year could go to a handful of players, although Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is the favorite.
