NFL Awards: No hardware for Brady, Patriots

Turns out missing the first four games of the season proved to big a hurdle for Tom Brady in his bid for NFL MVP, with Matt Ryan winning the league’s highest individual honor Saturday night.

Ryan was also named the AP Offensive Player of the Year after throwing 38 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. The Falcons quarterback had a 69.9 completion percentage and totaled 4,944 passing yards. Ryan is the first Falcons player to win honors. Brady finished second in the voting.

Khalil Mack upset Von Miller, earning AP Defensive Player of the Year. Mack finished with 73 tackles for the Raiders, 11 sacks, five forced fumbles and three pass deflections. The defensive end also had one interception and one touchdown.

Dak Prescott beat out his Cowboys teammate Ezekiel Elliot, being named AP Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. Prescott finished the season with 3667 yards in the air, completing 67.8 of his passes, chucking 23 touchdowns and only four interceptions. In addition to his passing, Prescott ran for 282 yards, averaging 4.95 yards per carry, scrambling the end zone six times.

Prescott wasn’t the only Cowboy to take home hardware. Jason Garrett was named the AP coach of the Year after leading Dallas to a 13-3 regular season record.

Joey Bosa of the San Diego Chargers took home AP Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Of the defensive end’s 41 tackles, he had 10.5 sacks.

Jordy Nelson won the AP Comeback Player of Year award. He scored a league-high 14 TDs and had 1,257 yards, bouncing back from his torn ACL.

Larry Fitzgerald and Eli Manning earned Walter Payton Man of the Year honors.

Atlanta’s Kyle Shanahan won the Assistant Coach of the Year award.

Frank Gore won the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

The Dallas Cowboys offensive line earned top billing.

Injury won't stop Brady in the kitchen on Thanksgiving

Tom Brady was back at practice Thanksgiving morning despite an Achilles' injury that kept him out of Wednesday session.

TB12 was also playing hurt in the kitchen later Thursday as he posted a photo of him preparing Thanksgiving biscuits for his holiday feast.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I wanted to say how much I love and appreciate you all for the support you have given me....

Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, also took to social media to post photos of the biscuit master and family jumping for joy to celebrate Turkey Day. Tom's rocking the Uggs of course, but watch that sore Achilles'!
