Aaron Rodgers wins first league MVP award of 2014

GREEN BAY — Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was named the league’s MVP by the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) on Wednesday, the first league MVP award announced for the 2014 season.

Rodgers finished the regular season with 341 completions in 520 attempts for 4,381 yards with 38 touchdowns and just five interceptions for a 112.2 passer rating.

He had the fewest interceptions in the league while ranking second in passer rating and third in TD passes. He led the Packers to a 12-4 regular-season record as Green Bay captured its fourth straight NFC North title and earned a first-round playoff bye with the No. 2 seed in the NFC.

The PFWA award could potentially be a precursor to the Associated Press NFL MVP award, recognized as the league’s official award, which Rodgers won in 2011. It will be announced during the annual NFL Honors show on Jan. 31, the night before Super Bowl XLIX.

Earlier this week, Rodgers was named to PFWA’s All-NFL team. PFWA also selected Rodgers, WR Jordy Nelson and G Josh Sitton for its All-NFC team, while C Corey Linsley and S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix were named to PFWA’s All-Rookie team.
