There have been four past winners of the coveted Super Bowl MVP award who have spent time with the Arizona Cardinals franchise.

This coming Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals will watch helplessly as a division rival of theirs will be competing in Super Bowl LVI. It was the Los Angeles Rams who knocked the Cards out of this year’s playoffs, and now Sean McVay’s squad will be taking on the Cincinnati Bengals for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The Cardinals, as a franchise, have appeared in just one Super Bowl. That was back in February of 2009 when the team lost a 27-23 heartbreaker to the six-time champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

Following each and every Super Bowl, an award is presented to that particular matchup’s most valuable performer. The following are four former Redbirds who have taken home the coveted Super Bowl MVP honor.
