Everything Matt Ryan said about winning the MVP

Ryan, also voted to the 2016 All-Pro Team by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL, earned 25 votes in balloting announced Saturday night at the NFL Honors show.

Yes, the Dallas rookies were phenomenal, Aaron Rodgers had a great latter part of the season and Tom Brady was once again magnificent.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is this season's NFL MVP. Is he the quarterback who threw 38 touchdown passes and seven interceptions in 2016, or is he the quarterback who averaged 25 touchdowns and nearly 14 interceptions over his first eight pro seasons? He led the Falcons (11-5) to the NFC South title.

Speaking of Prescott, the fourth-round pick out of Mississippi State won the AP offensive rookie of the year. His first NFL pass was a 62-yard touchdown, and he was named the league's offensive rookie of the year. Ryan averaged just over nine yards per pass, the highest rate ever for a quarterback with more than 400 completions in a season. The Falcons quarterback was the big victor at NFL Honors on Saturday, an event where the league annually hands out its biggest awards.

And if he can achieve that feat while besting Brady, Ryan will have nothing left to prove. Prescott received one vote for MVP.

The league's defensive rookie was part of another team that ended the season on a down note. The Cardinals just didn't win enough games.

Barclays PLC Cuts Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) Price Target to $62.00
The company marked its 52 week high milestone of $19.28 on Dec 12, 2016 while its 52-Week Low was marked on Feb 19, 2016 at $6.52. The rating scale runs from 1 to 5 with 5 indicating a Strong Sell, 1 indicating a Strong Buy and 3 indicating a Hold.


Ryan's the reason the Falcons are gaining some traction heading into the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots. Among them are veteran defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux, one of the longest-tenured Falcons and a team leader, and 34-year-old starting right guard Chris Chester, who re-signed with the Falcons on a one-year deal last year.

After throwing 10 interceptions in the entire season, Gannon threw five in Super Bowl XXXVII, and his Oakland team was crushed, 48-21, by Tampa Bay.

They included Super Bowl-winning quarterback Kurt Warner and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Kyle Shanahan is expected to officially be named head coach of the San Francisco 49ers shortly after Super Bowl LI concludes.

Brady had a great year- one of the best in his storied career- but he had the good fortune of playing with the #1 scoring defenses in the league, while playing four fewer games than Ryan. Adding to their list of award wins on Saturday night, the Cowboys also won the Built Ford Tough Offensive Line of the Year.
