Patrick Mahomes was named the NFL MVP as Saquon Barkley was surprisingly awarded the Offensive Rookie of the Year prize.

Many thought Baker Mayfield's fabulous performances for the Cleveland Browns would earn him the rookie award, but it was Barkley of the New York Giants who took it home.

In the Offensive Player of the Year race, this one was a bit more obvious as Mahomes secured it.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback also managed to win the MVP award over Drew Brees after throwing for 5,097 yards with 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2018.

Andrew Luck won the NFL's comeback player of the year.

After missing all of 2017 with an injury, the Colts QB threw for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns as Indianapolis made it to the divisional round of the playoffs.

Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams was named Defensive Player of the Year after he tallied 20.5 sacks, which is the most ever by a defensive tackle.

The Colts' Darius Leonard won the Defensive Rookie of the Year award after leading the NFL with 163 tackles.
