Why Joe Flacco was stunned he won NFL comeback award over Damar Hamlin

Joe Flacco has won numerous awards and accolades during his 16-year NFL career. That includes being named Super Bowl MVP and ranking 18th all-time in passing yards.

But it’s safe to assume that not even Flacco, the South Jersey native and University of Delaware star, expected to win the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award Thursday night at the NFL Honors show in Las Vegas.

Flacco signed with the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 19 as a backup after starter Deshaun Watson was lost for the season with a shoulder injury. He took over as starter on Dec. 3 after an injury to Dorian Thompson-Robinson, and led the Browns to the playoffs.
