NFL Most Valuable Player Award
Peyton Manning was named AP NFL MVP five times, more than any other player in history.

The National Football League Most Valuable Player Award (NFL MVP) is an award given by various entities to the American football player who is considered the most valuable in the National Football League (NFL) during the regular season. Organizations which issue an NFL MVP award include the Associated Press (AP) and the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA). The AP's award is considered the de facto official NFL MVP award.[1] Since the 2011 season, the NFL has held the annual NFL Honors ceremony, which recognizes the winner of the Associated Press MVP award.[2]

The first award described as a most valuable player award was the Joe F. Carr Trophy, presented by the NFL from 1938 to 1946. Other organizations that previously issued an MVP include Sporting News, Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA) and United Press International (UPI).
