The ‘NFL MVP runners-up’ quiz

J.J. Watt retired following the 2022 NFL season, but with his former team, the Houston Texans, going all in on a Super Bowl run in 2024, could we see the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year make a comeback? Recently, Watt was asked about a possible return to the NFL.

“I told DeMeco last year, I said, ‘Don’t call unless you absolutely need it, but if you ever do call, I’ll be there,” Watt said. “And he knows not to call unless he absolutely needs it. This is the last year I’ll tell him that, because I’m not going to keep training the way I’ve been training, but he knows that if he ever truly does need it, I’ll be there for him. I don’t anticipate that happening — they’ve got a very good group.”

Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. At the height of his powers, Watt was a destructive force, nearly becoming the third defensive player to win the MVP back in 2014. So with that in mind, how many of the NFL MVP runners-up in the Super Bowl era can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
