As so happens when a team wins and a player makes some huge contributions, Patrick Peterson is up for a pair of fan-voted awards this week, after his 99-yard punt return beat the Rams and he chipped in an interception and three tackles on defense.
Peterson is up for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week award, which can be voted on right here. Peterson’s competition include Bengals QB Andy Dalton, Falcons receiver Julio Jones, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray and Redskins running back Roy Helu.
Peterson can also win the GMC “Never Say Never” Moment of the Week honor for his stunning overtime punt return, only the second overtime punt-return TD in NFL history (Tamarick Vanover did it for the Chiefs in 1995). Peterson’s competition there is Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, each of whom took their teams on game-winning touchdown drives and threw the final TD with less than 20 seconds remaining. For this award, vote right here.
