New Orleans Saints fans may never get over the shocking no-call at the end of the NFC championship game that helped the Rams advance to Super Bowl 53, but quarterback Drew Brees had to quickly switch into dad mode on the night of the loss. The award was created in 2014 and named after Art Rooney Sr., the Steelers' founder. "It may look like a screwball, a slider here or there, but it'll get to you eventually". NFL players may view the awards as the lesser of the prizes the NFL can bestow, but this Honors program gives an important nod to some of the best performers from this year's NFL season.

I have to thank the Chiefs organization for believing in me - the Hunt family, Brett Veach, coach Reid, coach Kafka, coach Bieniemy - and most of all the players. The only unanimous member of the 2018 All-Pro team, Donald easily outdistanced Chicago edge rusher Khalil Mack, also an All-Pro who received five votes in balloting announced night at NFL Honors.

Brees was announced as the victor at the NFL Honors awards show in Atlanta. The award represents the role that sportsmanship plays in the game and that those who demonstrate integrity and honor on the field are role models for other players.

Son scores late to earn Spurs win
The 56-year-old nailed his prediction during Spurs' Premier League victory against Newcastle United , and it's eerily accurate. Spurs will look to continue their winning momentum when they host Leicester in the Premier League next Sunday at 13:30 GMT.

Mahomes threw for 5,097 yards and led the league with 50 touchdown passes, all while leading the Chiefs to a 12-4 record and the top seed in the AFC. Nagy got 24 votes.

After missing the 2011 season to an ACL injury in week one, Berry would go on to have a two year stretch from 2012-13 that would include two Pro-Bowl nods and his first All-Pro selection in 2013. Anthony Lynn of the Los Angeles Chargers came in a distant second with just 10. Mahomes also led the National Football League in yards per attempt and QBR.

"This kid is a special player, a special talent", said Eagles coach Doug Pederson. However, it takes more than just an elite quarterback to win. Fangio accepted a head-coaching position with the Denver Broncos in the offseason.
