Cam Newton, J.J. Watt, Ron Rivera Earn Top Awards At ‘NFL Honors’

Cam Newton won the top award at Saturday’s “NFL Honors,” but he was far from the only winner. And his Associated Press Most Valuable Player nod wasn’t the only award he picked up at the ceremony, either.

Newton also was named the AP Offensive Player of the Year for his performance at quarterback for the 15-1 Super Bowl-bound Carolina Panthers. His coach, Ron Rivera, also was honored with the AP Coach of the Year award. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt won the AP Defensive Player of the Year award and Deacon Jones Award.
