History Of Super Bowl MVP 2020 Winners
It is one of the most common proposition bets after which a player bets the super bowl MVP award. Let us figure out how many different players have won it by going into the history of this. The most recent super bowl MVP winner was Patrick Mahomes. There was much controversy over this as Mahomes did not perform well out of all the other players. Many people thought that RB Damien Williams belonging to the Chiefs was more deserving than Mahomes. Damien Williams made 104 yards on 17 attempts, 26 yards on 4 catches, and a pair of touchdowns. Being only 23 years old, there are chances for Mahomes to figure in the list of super bowl MVP winners.
Out of the 54 MVP trophies, 44 have gone to the offensive skill position player. A running back has won this trophy nearly seven times, whereas a wide receiver has also won it seven times. The defensive players were 10 in total, and out of those, one special player holds the trophy. In Super Bowl XXXI, Desmond Howard won it as he made a record of 90 punt return yards and 154 kickoff return yards, along with a touchdown.
The Patriots quarterback named Tom Brady has the most super bowl MVPs (4). If any player has won the super bowl three times, then that is Joe Montana, and he won the super bowl MVP award in 1982,1985, and 1990. Apart from this, three other players have won this award twice, and those players are Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, and Eli Manning.
Besides this, Harvey Martin and Randy White of the Dallas Cowboys were regarded as the co- MVPs of the Super Bowl XII. Another amazing thing about the super bowl is that a player also bagged this award from a losing team. Chuck Howley is the winner of the super bowl MVP who made it despite being from a losing team. He earned it in 1971 when he was a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Now, you must be clear with who won the Superbowl MVP and who did not.
