The NFL Honors show tonight is handing out the season’s NFL awards. Andy Reid received a vote for the NFL’s coach of the year award and now we have results of the defensive player of the year voting where Eric Berry received one vote as well.
Final DPOY voting, courtesty of @DWAZ73: Mack (18), Miller (17), Collins (9), DT Aaron Donald (3), LB Sean Lee (2), S Eric Berry (1).— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) February 5, 2017
I thought he might get a vote or a few. He has the best story in the NFL but it’s tough for a safety to win this award. Pass rushers (sacks) or cornerbacks (interceptions) seem to be the ones who are up there the most often with this award. Berry had a season to remember at safety with multiple game changing plays, notable at Carolina and Atlanta. He was the best player on the Chiefs defense.
Hell of a season for the AFC West. They received the first, second and sixth most votes for defensive player of the year.
