National Football League Most Valuable Player Award

The National Football League Most Valuable Player Award is an award given by various entities to the American football player who is considered the most valuable in the National Football League during the regular season. Organizations which currently give an NFL MVP award or have in the past include the Associated Press, the Newspaper Enterprise Association, Pro Football Writers of America, and United Press International. The first award described as a most valuable player award was the Joe F. Carr Trophy, awarded by the NFL from 1938 to 1946. Today, the AP award is considered the de facto official NFL MVP award. Since the 2011 season, the NFL has held the annual NFL Honors ceremony to recognize the winner of the Associated Press MVP award.
