Bengals Marvin Jones wins MVP for week 17 win over the Ravens

Andy Lyons

We're clearing out the to-do list with our week 17 MVP against the Ravens, and a tally on who won the most awards this season.

The Bengals week 17 MVP was the closest call of the season, coming down to wide receiver Marvin Jones and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. Jones caught five passes for 61 yards receiving, with all five passes leading to a first down and/or a touchdown -- which was a beautiful dance through the air. Kirkpatrick allowed five completions on 11 targets, but also generated two interceptions, including a pick-six that gave Cincinnati a 34-17 lead (and eventual win) over the Baltimore Ravens.

Jones claimed 30 percent of the vote, with Kirkpatrick falling three votes shy.

This is Jones' second CJ MVP of the season.

Now that the season is over, the tally is:

Andy Dalton - four player of the week awards (Week 6, 7, 14, 16). 
Vontaze Burfict - three player of the week awards (1, 11, 13).
Giovani Bernard - two player of the week awards (2, 9)
Marvin Jones - two player of the week awards (8, 17)

Michael Johnson (week 3), Vincent Rey (week 10), George Iloka (week 4), Wallace Gilberry (week 5), Brandon Tate (week 15), all won the award one time.
