NFL MVP and a host of other prestigious league honors will be handed out during an awards show on Super Bowl Saturday.
On the Saturday before Super Bowl Sunday, the NFL will throw its third annual NFL Honors award ceremony. The star-studded two-hour special, hosted by Alec Baldwin from Radio City Music Hall in New York, will hand out a host of honors, including league MVP, Coach of the Year and Rookie of the Year.
The show begins at 8 p.m. ET on Feb. 1 and will be broadcast on FOX. The NFL Network will air a red carpet event beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
Denver's Peyton Manning looks to be a lock for the AP Most Valuable Player after putting together arguably the best season an NFL quarterback has ever had. At 37 years old, Manning broke both the passing touchdown and passing yards records while helping the Broncos become the first team in league history to score more than 600 points in a season.
