The Super Bowl MVP, or Super Bowl Most Valuable Player, is an award given at the conclusion of the Super Bowl, the National Football League's championship game, to the player deemed to have made the most significant positive impact on the outcome of the game. Currently, the winner is chosen by a panel of members of the media, and the fans. The media panel's ballots count for 80 percent of the votes while the fans' ballots count for 20 percent.

Joe Montana holds the record for earning this honor the most times, three.

Super Bowl MVP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (373 words)
The Super Bowl MVP, or Super Bowl Most Valuable Player, is an award given at the conclusion of the Super Bowl, the National Football League's championship game, to the player deemed to have made the most significant positive impact on the outcome of the game.
Of the 40 Super Bowls, only 8 defensive players (2 of them co-MVPs) have won the recognition.
Since Super Bowl XXV, the Super Bowl MVP is awarded the Pete Rozelle Trophy, named after the former commissioner of the NFL who served from 1960 to 1989.
