After huge performances by two of the Broncos most potent weapons, it’s only appropriate that they be nominated for any and all awards possible.
Jay Cutler has been nominated for Fed Ex Air NFL Player of the Week honors for his performance on Thursday Night Football in Denver’s 34-30 win over Cleveland. Cutler completed 24-of-42 passes for 447 yards and three touchdowns in the Broncos’ come-from-behind victory.
Eddie Royal has also been nominated for an award for his Week 10 performance against the Browns. He is in the running for NFL Diet Pepsi Rookie of the Week honors. Royal hauled in six receptions for 164 yards, including a 93-yard touchdown, against the Browns.
Royal won this award for his Week 1 performance in the Broncos’ 41-14 win over the Raiders on Monday Night Football. On that night, he caught nine passes 146 yards and a touchdown.
