Lions running back Jahvid Best is one of five nominees for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week Award, which is voted on by fans. In the second week of the season, Best gained a total of 232 yards and scored three touchdowns for the Lions, making him the favorite to land the award (in my eyes, anyways).â†µ
So far this season, Best has five of the Lions' six touchdowns. That stat alone shows what in impact Best has had on the Lions' offense. Although he didn't rack up a ton of yards in week one, he was nominated for this award because he scored two touchdowns. This week, with both a big total of yards and touchdowns, Best has a very good chance of winning the award.â†µ
The other nominees are Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, Steelers returner Antonio Brown (from Central Michigan), Buccaneers receiver Mike Williams and Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas.
