  • Tom Brady, MVP again: 12 questions about No. 12

    Tom Brady, MVP again: 12 questions about No. 12

    Fortunately for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the man with the golden arm and silver helmet, the voting for the National Football League's annual MVP award takes place before the playoffs begin. Otherwise, it's possible he might not now have the distinction of being the first unanimous choice for the Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player Award. Some voters might have had second thoughts, and possibly moved Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers ahead of him on their ballots. Brady, after all, was off his game against the New York Jets, who eliminated the favored Patriots in their one-and-done postseason. Rodgers, meanwhile, is the hottest QB of the moment, and might just take the Packers all the way in Sunday's Super Bowl. As it is, Brady now joins Joe Montana, Steve Young, and Kurt Warner as two-time MVP winners. The all-time leader is the Colts’ Peyton Manning with four. Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas, and Brett Favre have three. Just how much do you know about this season’s top regular-season player? Take this quiz to find out:
