Redskins Upset Win Over Steelers Turns Coach and Comeback Player of the Year Odds Upside Down

The Washington Football Team pulled off a massive upset against the undefeated Steelers on Monday, and some of their personnel are reaping benefits in the arena of projected accolades.

Alex Smith solidified his frontrunner position as the Comeback Player of the Year over Ben Roethlisberger, and Ron Rivera gained ground on Mike Tomlin in the Coach of the Year race.

SportsBetting has updated its odds for the primary NFL awards categories (MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Offensive Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year and Coach of the Year) which you can find below. 

Going into Week 13, Rivera had 30-1 odds to be named the league’s best coach. But his chances dropped to 20-1 after a gutty performance at Pittsburgh.
