Los Angeles Rams wide receiver COOPER KUPP was voted the winner of the Pete Rozelle Trophy awarded to the Super Bowl LVI Most Valuable Player.
Cooper Kupp has been a dependable mainstay for the Rams all season and the game-winning drive to seal the victory for Los Angeles proves why he is the appropriate MVP.
Kupp recorded eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning touchdown catch with 1:25 remaining in the fourth quarter. He also had seven rushing yards.
Prior to the Super Bowl, Kupp talked how participating in the team’s quarterback meetings helped him build essential chemistry with Stafford.
He is the eighth wide receiver to be named Super Bowl MVP and the first since New England wide receiver JULIAN EDLEMAN in Super Bowl LIII.
Kupp joins Pro Football Hall of Famer JOE MONTANA (1989) as the only players to win Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player in the same season.
Kupp recorded 33 receptions during the 2021 postseason and surpassed TRAVIS KELCE (31 receptions during the 2020 postseason) for the most receptions in a single postseason all-time. He also registered 478 receiving yards this postseason, trailing only LARRY FITZGERALD (546 receiving yards in 2008) for the most in a single postseason ever.
The award is chosen by a panel comprised of 16 media members and fans interactively through the National Football League’s official website.
