LOS ANGELES, February 2, 2013 — Tonight is the NFL 2012 Awards, the football equivalent of the Academy Awards.

TIME and PLACE: 8pm EST on CBS.

Earlier on Saturday the 2013 Hall of Fame class was announced. Sunday afternoon is Super Bowl XLVII. Saturday night brings the awards for the best players of 2012.

Not since the late Chris Farley gave out a fake ESPY award to former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy have awards presentations been so eagerly anticipated.

Continuing the festiveness and the festivities, here are the NFL 2012 Awards preview.

PREDICTIONS:

NFL Most Valuable Player: Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is the sentimental choice, but Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning deserves to win his fifth MVP. He is the only four-time winner in NFL history and is simply playing lights out football.

Rookie of the year: Colts quarterback Andrew Luck edges out Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, especially if the Redskins miss the playoffs. Russell Wilson has been phenomenal in recent weeks, but Seattle also has an amazing defense.

Offensive player of the year: Adrian Peterson wins. Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is out of this world, but his team is 4-11. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has struggled the last couple weeks.
Defensive player of the year: Broncos linebacker Von Miller edges out Texans defender JJ Watt.

Head Coach of the year: He is actually the assistant coach, but Bruce Arians of the Colts deserves this one for filling in when Chuck Pagano came down with lukemia. He edges out Pete Carroll of the Seahawks.

Comeback player of the year: Adrian Peterson. Less than one year after a devastating knee injury, he won the rushing title. He edges out Peyton Manning coming off the neck surgery.

Best story of the year: The Colts have a ton of heart. The cheerleaders shaving their heads bald in honor of their coach was what life is about. This entire team edges out Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning making their comebacks, as well as Calvin Johnson achieving the single season receiving record.
