DALLAS COWBOYS QB TONY ROMO WINS “GREATNESS ON THE ROAD” AWARD PRESENTED BY COURTYARD AT “4th ANNUAL NFL HONORS”
TWO-HOUR PRIMETIME AWARDS SHOW ON NBC SALUTES OUTSTANDING PLAYERS & PERFORMANCES FROM 2014 SEASON & PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2015
Dallas Cowboys QB TONY ROMO is the winner of the “GREATNESS ON THE ROAD” AWARD PRESENTED BY COURTYARD for his four-touchdown, comeback performance in a 31-28 road victory over the New York Giants. The award was announced tonight, Saturday, January 31, at the “4th Annual NFL Honors” awards show that will air nationally at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
The “GREATNESS ON THE ROAD” AWARD PRESENTED BY COURTYARD is given to the player who demonstrates the best performance in a road game during the regular season. NFL Media Analysts selected Romo’s Week 12 play as the pinnacle of “Greatness On The Road.”
For the fourth consecutive year, the NFL and THE ASSOCIATED PRESS announced their annual accolades in an awards show saluting its best players, performances and plays from the 2014 season. SETH MEYERS, host of Late Night with Seth Meyers and Saturday Night Live alum, hosted the show and many of the winners were on hand to accept their awards.
For the second year, the newest PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME class will be announced and introduced during the show with the Class of 2015 appearing on stage at Symphony Hall in Phoenix.
Among the awards that will be announced will be the prestigious Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide, which recognizes a player’s off-the-field community service as well as his playing excellence. The winner of the inaugural NFL Sportsmanship Award presented by Bose, as voted by his peers, also will be recognized.
Seven of the awards will be from the AP. Those awards, which include AP Most Valuable Player and AP Coach of the Year presented by Lenovo, are voted on at the end of the regular NFL season by a nationwide media panel of 50 people who regularly cover the league. The ballots are tabulated solely by the AP. The AP is providing the list of honorees to the NFL for the program, and any advertising or sponsorship on the broadcast is being handled separately and independently by the NFL.
Top-Tier Sponsors of “4th Annual NFL Honors” include Bose, Bridgestone, Lenovo, Nationwide, Surface, SAP and XFINITY.
