Offensive Player of the Year: Tom Brady

  • Position: Quarterback
  • Passing Yards: 4,770
  • Completion Percentage: 64.4% (402/624)
  • Touchdowns: 36
  • Interceptions: 7
  • Passer Rating: 102.2

 

“This shouldn’t really surprise anyone, as Brady had one of his best seasons with an abysmal offensive line, which caused him to get sacked 38 times in 2015 compared to 21 the previous season. He led the National Football League with 36 passing touchdowns. Also, he was third in passing yards with 4,770 and finished fourth in the league in completions with 402 even though his receivers were constantly being rotated because of injury. His ability to escape the distractions off the field caused by court appearances and still dominate almost every opponent in his path locked this honor for two-time NFL MVP.”

Defensive Player of the Year: Jamie Collins  

  • Position: Linebacker
  • Solo Tackles: 51
  • Assisted Tackles: 38
  • Sacks: 5.5
  • Forced Fumbles: 5
  • Fumbles Recovered: 1
  • Interceptions: 3
  • Passes Defended: 6
  • Kicks Blocked: 1

 

“The Patriots defense struggled in 2015 with injuries and the consistency of having all starters on the field at one time. However, the defensive MVP nod goes to Jamie Collins even though he only played 12 games on the season. His production and effort were maximized in the games that he did play and when healthy he is one of the best linebackers in the game. A pure example of athleticism, Collins just needs to be healthy for a full season in order for him and his supporting defensive cast to become one of the elite groups in the NFL.”

The New England Patriots finished the regular season with a 12-4 record and will not receive a 1st round pick in the 2016 NFL draft due to issues surrounding “deflategate.”
