In 2002, Rich Gannon won the award and made the Super Bowl with the Raiders. In that Super Bowl ... they lost by 6,000 points to the Buccaneers. (Actual score: 48-21. It didn't feel that close.) Gannon threw five interceptions in the game, a Super Bowl record, and three of those were returned for touchdowns. He was perhaps the most cursed of all.
In 2006, LaDainian Tomlinson made it two running back MVPs in a row, with his 2,323 yards from scrimmage and 31 offensive touchdowns. But ... he and the Chargers lost their lone game in the playoffs ... to the Patriots. Maybe this was starting to be a Patriots curse as much as anything else.
Peyton Manning won in 2008 and 2009. The Colts lost their lone playoff game in 2008, then lost the Super Bowl in 2009. Manning threw a back-breaking pick-six at the end of that one to kill the Colts' chances of a fourth-quarter comeback.
In 2010, it was back to Tom Brady, the first-ever unanimous selection. Brady entered the playoffs that year having not thrown an interception in 335 pass attempts, a span that went from mid-October through the end of the season in early January. So of course, the cursed MVP threw an interception on his fifth pass attempt in the Patriots' first playoff game, which they lost at home to the Jets, a team they had beaten 45-3 just a month earlier on the same field. Cursed.
2016 may be the saddest tale of all, with Matt Ryan winning the award. He and the Falcons led 28-3 in the Super Bowl -- again, this game also made the news, so you've probably heard about it by now -- but then collapsed in the fourth quarter, blowing the biggest lead in Super Bowl history. The curse had reached a new level.
In 2017, Tom Brady tried to singlehandedly destroy the curse, like Harry Potter stabbing a Horcrux with the fang of a Basilisk. (That's right, sports fans, we're getting nerdy.) Brady threw for a Super Bowl-record 505 yards plus three touchdowns ... but Malcolm Butler was stapled to the sideline for reasons unknown, and Brady was strip-sacked late in the fourth to significantly damage Brady's championship hopes. His Hail Mary at the end of regulation fell to the turf. The curse survived even Brady's best shot.
Rodgers may be the most cursed of all. In his four MVP seasons, he led the Packers to a 52-11 record, throwing 168 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. In the playoffs of those four seasons, Rodgers and the Packers went 2-4, and he threw 11 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Brady was obviously responsible for enforcing the curse quite a bit, having delivered eight playoff losses to MVPs on the opposing team. But Brady was, quite obviously, not immune from the curse itself, having lost two Super Bowls and a home playoff game in his three MVP seasons.
Obviously, there's some tongue planted in cheek when discussing a \"curse.\" As curses aren't real. But this 22-year run of the NFL's best player failing to win a championship really is quite remarkable. It's especially odd considering an MVP won the Super Bowl in five of the seven years prior to the curse beginning in the year 2000.

If you remember, the mercy seat on the ark of the covenant was where, once a year on the Day of Atonement, the priest would sprinkle the blood of animals. The blood was a barrier between the curse of the law and the people of the covenant.
For hundreds of years, various members of the Sohma family have been reincarnated as God or one of the thirteen animals by being possessed by their original spirits. Isuzu Sohma explains that even though they don't have any memories of the original promise between God and the animals, they are still bound by that promise, since the blood of the Zodiac spirits remembers. The original God only wanted the bonds to be sacred and something that would connect him to his friends forever, but he didn't intend for the bond to become something cursed and the source of generations of abuse and misery in the Sohma clan.
Akito Sohma is a woman (a man in the first anime), but was raised as a man because her mother, Ren Sohma, was jealous of the attention the \"god\" of the Zodiac was receiving from everyone, especially her husband, Akira Sohma. The only members of the Zodiac who knew Akito's true gender were Kureno, Shigure, Hatori, and Ayame. Akito is very frail and gets sick often. She is short-tempered and acts in an extremely abusive manner to everyone, out of anger and despair over her mother's abuse. Akito plays the part of \"god\" and desperately clings to the assertion that she is the ruler of the Zodiac, believing that the Cursed Sohmas will stay by her side forever and she has the right to keep them bound to her. After the curse breaks and Tohru Honda manages to reach for Akito, she reveals her true gender to the rest of the Zodiac members and officially lets go of them. She begins to wear women's clothing and grows her hair down to her shoulders (though she later cuts it back short). She and her love interest Shigure begin living together at the end of the manga.
Being under the influence of the curse, Yuki's relationships with his family were almost non-existent; his father is never mentioned; his mother, although she never rejected him, used him as a tool for her own benefits; and his older brother ignored his pleas for help to protect himself, though he came to deeply regret it with time.
Despite being under the curse's influence, Kisa has a normal and loving relationship with her parents. Her mother's instability at one point was mostly due to Kisa being bullied rather than her being a Zodiac, as she felt that she was unable to help Kisa deal with the harassment.
Momiji's family situation was shattered when his mother first held him when he was born and he transformed into a Rabbit. His mother, implied to be extremely anxious over the curse (and maybe already unstable) rejected Momiji with her entire body and became so depressed over having given birth to a creature as Momiji that she attempted to commit suicide via first slitting her wrists (implied) and stabbing herself (confirmed). She later got her all of her memories of Momiji erased by Hatori, and as a result, Momiji became estranged from his mother and sister by his father (though he does love Momiji and accepts his curse), and they are not aware of their familial relationship, except Momiji and his father.
It is known that both of Hatori's parents were very strict and his home life wasn't very warm, which could possibly be due to Hatori being under the curse's influence. His mother passed away from illness when he was in elementary school, and his father died of an unspecified illness while Hatori was in high school. At some point, the memory suppression technique was passed to him by his father, who held that role before him. His former lover was Kana Sohma, an extended member of the family who found out about the curse while working for Hatori. When Akito didn't approve of their love she injured Hatori; Kana suffered mentally and had to have her memory erased. He also erased the memories of Momiji's Mother, and it's implied that Hatori feels guilty for it and that's why he is close to Momiji (apparently being his caretaker for a while).
Whenever Hatori is hugged by the opposite sex, or if his body goes through a great deal of stress, he transforms into his Chinese Zodiac form; a yellow eight-centimeter long seahorse rather than an actual dragon, there are no more dragons in the world. It is explained that in mythology, all dragons start out as seahorses, and only some gain the opportunity to ascend to dragon-hood. Shigure has stated that he believes it to be a sign that the curse is weakening. Hatori is extremely self-conscious about his transformation and uses blackmail to avoid having it revealed to others. It is mentioned that Hatori in his seahorse form is able to function fine in both salt- and freshwater. His natural dark hair- and eye colors could are also influenced by the Dragon's spirit. Whenever he transforms into his zodiac animal or reverts back to his human form, a dark purple smoke surrounds him. Seahorses are drawn to him and Hatori can also somewhat communicate with them.
Ayame is also the older brother of Yuki; the Rat. His younger brother was favored over him due to being born as the Rat, and Ayame didn't particularly receive any special treatment due to being born as the Snake. Being under the influence of the curse, Ayame's relationships with his family were almost non-existent; his father is never mentioned; his mother, who although never rejected him, threw him away and focused on Yuki to make him the perfect obedient child that Ayame never was; and his younger brother Yuki, who Ayame ignored during their childhoods to protect himself, which he'd come to deeply regret witg time.
As the Horse of the Zodiac, Rin is noted to be extremely fast in both her human- and animal form, to the point where no one can catch up to her. She is very stubborn and straightforward, like the Horse she embodies. She is also the only Zodiac who is actively searching for a way to break the Sohma curse in order to free Hatsuharu from his suffering.
Despite being under the curse's influence, Hiro has an unusually loving and close relationship with his parents, especially his mother Satsuki. Hiro and his mother are viewed as an anomaly within the Sohma family, as Satsuki has never once been rejecting or overprotective of Hiro, and only exclaimed \"I love sheep!\", after she held him for the first time after he was born. Hiro also has a younger sister named Hinata, and the fact that he can't hold her is treated as nothing
