The 101 Awards annually honors outstanding achievements in the NFL and winners are based on the votes of 101 national media members. It is the longest-running annual salute to professional football.
In addition to the national winners, two Chiefs will be honored. Those winners weren’t announced on Wednesday.
The awards program will take place Feb. 26 at Westin Crown Center.
