LAS VEGAS — Quarterback Brock Purdy produced the league’s best passer rating and led the 49ers a Super Bowl appearance in his first full season as an NFL starter, but those accomplishments weren’t enough for him to take home the Most Valuable Player award.
Purdy’s outstanding regular season was good enough for him to finish fourth in NFL MVP voting, while his 49ers teammate, running back Christian McCaffrey, was third in the voting.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson won his second league MVP, as announced Thursday evening during NFL Honors. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who led the league with 36 touchdown passes, placed ahead of both McCaffrey and Purdy as the runner-up to Jackson.

The voting took place before the postseason, when Dallas’ season ended with a 48-32 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round.
Jackson likely separated himself from Purdy with his performance on Christmas night at Levi’s Stadium in the Ravens’ 33-19 win over the 49ers.
In addition to being a finalist for MVP, Purdy finished sixth in the voting for NFL Offensive Player of the Year and sixth for NFL Comeback Player of the Year.
