Big games in wins mean possible awards. So when Beanie Wells and Patrick Peterson do what they did, they earn their way into the weekly voting. Beanie, after rushing for a team-record 228 yards against the Rams, is up for the FedEx ground player of the week, vs. the Bengals’ Cedric Benson (106 yards rushing and one TD) and the Titans’ Chris Johnson (190 yards). You can vote for Beanie right here.
Peterson, meanwhile, is up for the Pepsi rookie of the week award after his fourth punt return for a touchdown this season. He’s up against Texans DE J.J. Watt, Panthers QB Cam Newton, Bengals QB Andy Dalton and Redskins RB Roy Helu. You can vote for Peterson right here.
— Now this is what you call a true fan. Writer Will Leitch, who founded the website Deadspin.com and now works for Yahoo! and New York magazine, is also a huge Cardinals fan. He tweeted out last night he spent 45 minutes on the playoff situation simulator on ESPN.com just to come up with a scenario where the Cards got in. And he finally did. Check it out. The Cards would have to win out, of course (and no, I am not endorsing its probability. I don’t need a lecture from Jim Mora).
