Russell Wilson nominated for Rookie of the Week — again
Another week, another nomination of Russell Wilson for Rookie of the Week.
This is the ninth time the Seahawks’ rookie quarterback has been nominated, and sixth in the past nine weeks. This week, Wilson ran for the game-winning touchdown in Sunday’s 20-13 victory over the Rams at CenturyLink Field and also threw his 26th touchdown pass to tie the NFL rookie record that was set by Peyton Manning in 1998.
You can vote here for Wilson, who won the honor in Week 10. Voting this week ends Wednesday at noon PT.
The other nominees are Titans linebacker Zach Brown, who returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a victory over the Jaguars; Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who had 18 tackles in a win over the Ravens; Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who caught four passes for 111 yards and a TD in a win over the Texans; and Redskins running back Alfred Morris, who ran for 200 yards and three TDs in a win over the Cowboys that clinched the NFC East title.
