This coming Saturday, February 4, the National Football League will be televising its first-ever annual awards show, called NFL Honors, from 9:00 to 11:00 PM on NBC. If you're a sucker for awards shows and football, this seems like it'll be right up your alley.
Four Buffalo Bills players - two present, two past - are scheduled to appear at the banquet. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Stevie Johnson represent the team currently. Andre Reed, who at that point will know whether or not he's a member of the 2012 NFL Hall of Fame class, will also be on hand, as will his former quarterback, the one and only Jim Kelly.
A total of 15 awards will be handed out for various season-long and individual-game (or even individual-play) performances during the 2011 season. It's conceivable that one of Fitzpatrick and Johnson are eligible for some award - perhaps a single-play award, given the circumstances of the season - but they don't necessarily need to be to score an invite.
Will you be watching the NFL's first annual awards show on Saturday night?
