The NFL handed out its 2016 awards at the NFL Honors show Saturday night on FOX. Matt Ryan took home the MVP — see who took home Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year and more.
And be sure to tune in to FOX for Sunday's Super Bowl between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots (6:30 p.m. ET).
Defensive Player of the Year: Khalil Mack, Raiders
2016 stats: 73 tackles, 11 sacks, 1 INT
Mack was the driving force behind a defense that teamed with Derek Carr and the offense to bring Oakland back to the playoffs for the first time since 2002. He edged Denver's Von Miller, 18-17 in the closest voting.
Offensive Rookie of the Year: Dak Prescott, Cowboys
Prescott shocked by the football world by replacing injured Tony Romo in the preseason and leading Dallas to a 13-3 season and the NFC East title. He beat out fellow Cowboys rookie star Ezekiel Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing, 28 votes to 21, but brought him onstage to share the award.
"He deserves it just as much as I do from his yards, his catches," Prescott said. "The way we handled things in the backfield is always together."
Defensive Rookie of the Year: Joey Bosa, Chargers
2016 stats: 41 tackles, 10.5 sacks
Bosa played just 12 games after a holdout to start the season, but the No. 3 overall pick quickly made an impact.
Ryan had a career comeback to rival any before him, leading the top-ranked Atlanta offense and taking the Falcons back to the playoffs for the first time in four years. He beat out his Super Bowl counterpart Tom Brady, 25 votes to 10.

Comeback Player of the Year: Jordy Nelson, Packers
2016 stats: 97 catches, 1,257 yards, 14 TDs
Nelson returned from a torn ACL to team up with Aaron Rodgers and rally Green Bay to the NFC North title. They also surpassed Brett Favre and Antonio Freeman for the most TDs by a QB and a receiver in Packers history.
Coach of the Year: Jason Garrett, Cowboys
2016 record: 13-3
Garrett overcame losing QB Tony Romo in the preseason and won an NFC East title with rookie Dak Prescott leading the way. He also handled the season-long scrutiny surrounding the QB job and a handful of injuries and suspensions on defense, keeping the Cowboys on top. Garrett got 25 votes while New England's Bill Belichick got 14.
Other awards: Walter Payton Man of the Year — Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals & Eli Manning, Giants; Assistant Coach of the Year: Kyle Shanahan, Falcons.
