Running back Beanie Wells, after rushing for 85 yards and two touchdowns and adding two catches for 32 yards, is up for the league’s Pepsi Rookie of the Week award, which is voted on by the fans. Beanie will battle Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (6 catches, 76 yards, TD), Redskins LB Brian Orakpo (6 tackles, 1.5 sacks), Bengals RB Bernard Scott (54 rush/receiving yards and a 96-yard TD kickoff return) and Packers LB Clay Matthews (1 sack, 2 fumble recoveries).
Fans do make a difference, after voting QB Kurt Warner as the FedEx air Player of the Week last week. And hey, look at this: Warner is up for the same award this week, after his 29-of-38 performance for 340 yards and two scores. Fans can again vote for him. Warner is up against Colts QB Peyton Manning (28-of-44, 327, 4 TD, 2 INT) and the Vikings’ Brett Favre (20-of-29, 344, 1 TD).
