Several of the league’s most notable figures earned recognition and received praise during the 2024 NFL Honors awards show on Thursday night.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson took home the second MVP trophy of his career, becoming the 11th player in NFL history to win the award at least twice.

Meanwhile, the Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year award-winners were on the same team for the second time in the past two years as Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud as well as defensive end Will Anderson Jr. were awarded each honor, respectively.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2024 was also officially announced, as seven NFL legends will be honored and enshrined in Canton during Aug. 1 through Aug. 4.

There were also several humorous moments throughout the night, such as a magic trick that featured NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as well as Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders.

San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey secured the Offensive Player of the Year award, while Cleveland Browns pass-rusher Myles Garrett was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.

Both McCaffrey and Garrett played pivotal roles on two playoff teams in each conference, helping the 49ers earn the No. 3 scoring offense during the regular season while the Browns allowed the fewest yards per game in the NFL.
