For the third time this season, Andrew Luck once again receives the Rookie of the Week honors in his nail-biting 17-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns Week 7.
Luck was 16-29 for just 186 yards, but both touchdowns the Colts scored was ran in himself. For a quarterback that’s not known for running out of the pocket, he has moved well this season.
It looks to be a tight race for Rookie of the Year between the top two draft picks in Luck and Robert Griffin III. Both quarterbacks are taking teams and rebuilding them and are having impressive seasons. Both are very calm, cool, and collected and have shown strong leadership skills in their early careers.
The rest of the season between these two guys will surly be fun to watch.
Noteworthy honorable mentions:
Alfred Morris – RB – Washington Redskins
Despite key fumble, he had 22 carries for 120 yards and 2 receptions for 10 yards
Brandon Weeden – QB – Cleveland Browns
Threw 25 completions in 41 tries for 264 yards and threw two touchdowns with a 61 completion % in loss to Indianapolis
Robert Griffin III – QB – Washington Redskins
20-for-28 for 258 yards and two touchdowns with a 71.4 completion % in loss to the Giants
