Rodgers earned 48 of the 50 first-place votes (two went to Saints quarterback Drew Brees). He is the first Packer to win the award since Brett Favre won it in 1997. This season, Rodgers led the NFL in QB rating (122.5) and threw for 45 touchdown passes and 4,643 yards. The 28-year-old led the Packers to a 15-1 regular season record.
