The 2018 NFL Honors for the season of 2017 (not as confusing as it sounds) took place in Minnesota on Super Bowl weekend. If you have every watched this event and award show, you’ll know that it’s not exactly what most would expect.
The NFL Honors are always emotional, respective and full of some awesome fashion. This award ceremony is really special because it highlights and gives awards to everyone in the NFL (past and present) whom has made a significant impact and progression to a sport so many of us all love.
There are laughs, tears and so much talent within one space it’s sometimes hard to wrap our heads around it! These men have devoted their time and given their all day after day to a sport they admire and adore to the fullest extent, and being recognized by the organization and their peers for their talent is always extremely heartwarming to see.
As we mentioned, the NFL Honors always delivers on emotions and entertainment, but, it’s important to not forget style. Since we have some of the biggest names in NFL, let alone sports history in one building – it’s a pretty expressive and bold group when it comes to fashion. And to be completely honest, it makes the entire program that much better.
We did a short round up of men that stood out to us at this year’s ceremony, not only for their skills on the field, but their confidence and style.
Antonio Brown (Pittsburg Steelers)
Antonio Brown is one of the best wide receivers in the league right now, with some even thinking (and hoping) he would walk away with the NFL MVP of the year (spoiler- he didn’t). But even though Antonio didn’t win MVP, he sure made a statement in another way. His bright aqua tuxedo with a red-heart embroidered on the suit jacket paired with black accessories landed Antonio on our best dressed list for this year’s ceremony.
Alvin Kamara (New Orleans Saints)
The Saints running back walked away with way more than just the Offensive Rookie of the Year at this year’s NFL Honors. He walked away with a spot on our best dressed list! Which we think, personally, is equally as exciting. Alvin sported a sophisticated look with some classic black tuxedo pants, but opted for a patterned and velvet deep burgundy wine colored tuxedo jacket. The contrast of the jacket with the pants and his black bow tie was executed perfectly.
Todd Gurley (Los Angeles Rams)
A winner in multiple categories (FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Year & Offensive Player of the Year) was running back Todd Gurley. Another high-hopes winner (from NFL Fans) for MVP, Todd had a pretty awesome season and has turned heads for a while now. His ceremony ensemble was no different. Looking great in his classically fitted blue suit, Todd switched things up by wearing a red sweater and white dress shirt under the suit. And let’s just recognize and appreciate his red sneakers for a second. Apart from blending perfectly into the red-carpet, they tied the entire look together for an effortlessly trendy suited look!
J.J. Watt (Houston Texans)
Walter Payton’s Man of the Year Award went to Houston Texans own J.J. Watt. Although injured pretty bad (for the second year in a row) and having to sit out for the season; the defensive end stepped up in a big way when it came to helping his city out after Hurricane Harvey obstructed Texas. Still one of the best defensive ends in the league, J.J. is also one of the most humble, hard-working and giving man that not only deserved this (new) title, but will continue to live up to it. Being honored with an award like this, it was no surprise J.J. sported a look that only J.J. could pull off so well. Wearing a grey suit, with matching vest and a patterned black-and-white tie for some contrast, J.J. not only won, but looked the role of man of the year.
