Seth Meyers to host NFL awards show

NEW YORK (AP) NBC's Seth Meyers will host ''NFL Honors,'' the Super Bowl eve telecast in which the league introduces the new Pro Football Hall of Fame class and hands out awards for the 2014 season, including The Associated Press MVP.

The former ''Saturday Night Live'' player and current late-night TV host takes over for Alec Baldwin, who hosted the first four shows.

''NFL Honors'' will be held at Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix on Jan. 31, a night before the Super Bowl kicks off in nearby Glendale.

The AP will hand out awards for coach of the year, offensive and defensive players and rookies, comeback player, and assistant coach. The awards are voted on by a nationwide panel of 50 people who cover the league.
