Robert Griffin III Again A Nominee For Rookie Of The Week Award
Robert Griffin III was nominated for the NFL’s Pepsi Max Rookie of the Week award on Tuesday after leading the Washington Redskins to a come-from-behind victory at Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Griffin completed 26 of 35 passes for 323 yards while running for 43 yards and a touchdown against the Buccaneers. The nomination is his second in four weeks; he won the award after the first week of the season.
Other nominees include New England running back Brandon Bolden, Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict, Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill and St. Louis kicker Greg Zuerlein.
The award is granted via fan voting at nfl.com/rookies and ends Friday afternoon. Players who earn the weekly honors will then be eligible to be named the Rookie of the Year in February.
