For those nonsports-minded folks who see the Super Bowl as one big obstacle between the Golden Globes and the Oscars, allow us to offer the NFL’s own version of a red carpet award show.

Held each year the night before the Super Bowl, NFL Honors recognizes the best players and coaches of the year, and gives both celebs from the NFL and the world of entertainment a chance to shine on the red carpet.


The 6th annual NFL Honors was held Saturday night at the Wortham Theater.

Check out the best red carpet looks of the night in the photos above.
