After recording two rushing touchdowns in the Broncos’ regular-season finale, Knowshon Moreno is one of five rookies vying for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week honor.
The rookie running back finished with 50 rushing yards, 48 receiving yards and those two scores in Denver’s 44-24 loss to Kansas City. Moreno previously won this award in Week 4, Week 5, and Week 12.
In 16 games this season, Moreno led all rookies with 947 rushing yards. He added 213 receiving yards and reached the end zone nine times — seven via the rush and two via the pass.
Texans running back Arian Foster, Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis, Jaguars tight end Zach Miller, and Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace are the other finalists this week for the the honor. You can vote for Moreno here through Wednesday at 4 p.m. MST.
After the regular season, five players will be nominated for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honor. You can vote for Moreno here throughout the month of January. The winner will be announced at a press conference at Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida.
