SB MVP Historical Facts

Who has won Super Bowl MVP the most times?

Brady leads the way with five. Two years ago, Brady took Super Bowl MVP honors as the Bucs defeated the Chiefs in Super Bowl 55 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.

The only other player with more than two is Joe Montana. Montana picked up three during the San Francisco 49ers’ run of four titles in nine seasons.

Three other players also have two, and Mahomes can join that club by winning it this year. All three current members, like Brady and Montana, are quarterbacks.

Like Montana (and eventually Brady), two of the three are already in the Hall of Fame, and the third will be at some point: Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers (I and II), Terry Bradshaw of the Pittsburgh Steelers (XIII and XIV), and Eli Manning of the New York Giants (XLII and XLVI).

Which position has won Super Bowl MVP the most?

As with the NFL MVP, quarterbacks have dominated the award, winning it 31 of 56 times.

Wide receivers come in next with eight wins, followed by running back with seven. Linebacker (four), defensive end (two), and safety (also two) have been the most frequent winners on the defensive side of the ball.

Which positions have never won Super Bowl MVP? No offensive linemen or kickers have, but that is not a major surprise.

On the other hand, in what may come as a surprise to some, no tight ends have.

But if there is a year that it could happen, however, it is this year, as Kelce has been Kansas City’s top receiver this season. After catching 110 passes for 1,338 yards and 12 touchdowns in the regular season, he has 21 catches for 176 yards and three touchdowns in two playoff games.

The lone return man to win the award, Green Bay’s Desmond Howard is one of only four players to win both the Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl MVP. Roger Staubach, Jim Plunkett, and Marcus Allen are the other three.

Super Bowl MVP Winners by Position

  • Quarterback: 31 (Most Recent: Bucs QB Tom Brady in Super Bowl LV in 2021)
  • Running Back: 7 (Most Recent: Denver Broncos RB Terrell Davis in Super Bowl XXXII in 1998)
  • Wide Receiver: 8 (Most Recent: Rams WR Cooper Kupp in Super Bowl LVI in 2022)
  • Tight End: Never
  • Offensive Line: Never
  • Defensive End: 2 (Most Recent: Chicago Bears DE Richard Dent in Super Bowl XX in 1986)
  • Defensive Tackle: 1 (Dallas Cowboys DT Randy White in Super Bowl XII in 1978 – shared)
  • Linebacker: 4 (Most Recent: Broncos LB Miller in Super Bowl 50 in 2016)
  • Cornerback: 1 (Dallas Cowboys CB Larry Brown in Super Bowl XXX in 1996)
  • Safety: 2 (Most Recent: Bucs S Jackson in Super Bowl XXXVII in 2002)
  • Kicker/Punter: Never
  • Kick/Punt Returner: 1 (Green Bay Packers WR/KR/PR Desmond Howard in Super Bowl XXXI in 1997)

Who was the last defensive player to win Super Bowl MVP?

To date, linebacker Von Miller is the last defensive player to be named Super Bowl MVP.

Miller helped lead the Denver Broncos to a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. In the win, Miller had six tackles and two sacks, and he forced two fumbles.

Has anyone won NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP in the same season?

Only five players have pulled off the sweep in the same season: Starr (1966), Bradshaw (1978), Montana (1989), Emmitt Smith (1993), and Kurt Warner (1999).

Since Warner did the NFL MVP/Super Bowl MVP sweep in the 1999 season, there have been nine unsuccessful attempts to join or rejoin the club: Warner again in 2001, Raiders QB Rich Gannon in 2002, Seahawks RB Shaun Alexander in 2005, Tom Brady in 2007 and 2017, Peyton Manning in 2009 (Colts) and 2013 (Broncos), QB Cam Newton with the Panthers in 2015, and Matt Ryan with the Falcons in 2016.

Mahomes, who was named this season’s NFL MVP, will have a crack at ending the “curse” and finally adding a sixth member to the club on Super Bowl Sunday this year.

Thirteen players have won both awards at some point in their career, with Mahomes being the most recent member. He won NFL MVP in 2018, then bagged the Pete Rozelle Trophy two years ago when the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers to win their first title in 50 years.

Has a rookie ever won Super Bowl MVP?

To date, no rookie has won the award.

Could that drought finally come to an end in 2023? Chiefs RB Pacheco, a rookie out of Rutgers, has the best odds for any of the rookies on this year’s Super Bowl squads.

Pacheco led the team with 830 rushing yards in the regular season, and in two postseason games, he has 121 rushing yards on 22 carries, as well as six catches for 65 yards. He’ll be biding to be the first rookie to be named Super Bowl MVP and the first running back to win it in two and a half decades.

Has anyone won Super Bowl MVP in back-to-back years?

To date, Starr and Bradshaw are the only two players to win the award in back-to-back years.

Has the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award ever been shared?

That has happened only once. The Cowboys defeated the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XII, with a dominant defensive effort–eight forced turnovers, four sacks, 156 total yards allowed–leading the way in the win.

After playing a key role in the victory, defensive end Harvey Martin and defensive tackle Randy White shared the award.
