    <p><em>Posted by's Paul Kuharsky</em></p> <p> kicks off Super Bowl week with a nice package on Super Bowl MVPs that you can find <a href="" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p>It's not much of a project to review Super Bowl MVPs from the AFC South.</p> <p>In their combined histories, the four teams have three Super Bowl appearances and two wins.</p> <p>The Colts won Super Bowl V when they were in Baltimore, but as Tim Graham <a href="/blogs/afceast/0-4-804/Looking-back-on-AFC-East-Super-Bowl-MVPs.html" target="_blank">notes</a> in the AFC East blog, linebacker Chuck Howley of the <a href="" target="_new">Dallas Cowboys</a> captured the award, the only play from the losing team to ever do so.</p> <p>The Colts won Super Bowl XLI over the <a href="" target="_new">Chicago Bears</a> on Feb. 4, 2007. <a href="" target="_new">Peyton Manning</a> won the MVP Award in a debatable choice -- he was 25 of 38 for 247 yards with a touchdown and an interception. His 81.8 passer rating was the lowest for a Super Bowl MVP quarterback, <a href="" target="_blank">according to Sal Paolantonio</a>.</p> <p>Some thought running back <a href="" target="_new">Dominic Rhodes</a>, who carried 21 times for 113 yards and a touchdown, was the better choice.</p> <p>It was a nice line for Manning to add to his resume, of course, but nowhere near as significant or as important as "Super Bowl winner."</p>
