The NFL does not sanction any of the major postseason awards for player and coaches, but many are given out. Among the presenters for the 1996 regular season were AP, UPI, The Maxwell Football Club of Philadelphia, The Sporting News and the Pro Football Writers of America. Conference Most Valuable Player awards were also issued by the NFL Players Association.
