As you might suspect, quarterbacks often walk away with Most Valuable Player honors at the Super Bowl. They’ve done so 24 times in 45 games. Since 2001, the winner has been chosen by a media panel and fans, whose fourth-quarter voting via computers and wireless devices counts 20 percent in the selection process. As you wait to vote on this year’s Pete Rozelle Trophy winner, test your knowledge of past Super Bowl MVPs with this 12-question quiz.
