Lamar Jackson was named the league’s MVP at the NFL Honors ceremony in Las Vegas on Thursday night, solidifying his status as the best player in the NFL during the regular season. The Ravens quarterback received 45 of the 50 votes, earning first-team All-Pro quarterback and MVP honors. His only competition for the MVP award came from Dak Prescott, Christian McCaffrey, Brock Purdy, and Josh Allen.
Jackson won the MVP with 49 of 50 first-place votes, with Prescott finishing second, McCaffrey third, Purdy fourth, and Allen fifth. Other players who received votes for the award included Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes, C.J. Stroud, Matthew Stafford, and Myles Garrett.
This is not the first time Jackson has won the MVP award; he also received it unanimously in 2019. He is only one of 11 players in NFL history to win the award multiple times, joining legends such as Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady among others. During his career high season he achieved completion percentage and passing yards while throwing 24 touchdowns while running for five yards also contributed significantly to Ravens’ NFL-best 14-4 record during regular season.
