Knowshon wins Rookie of the Week.....Again!

Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has been named Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for the second consecutive week, the National Football League announced on Friday.

While making his first NFL start, Moreno totaled 124 yards from scrimmage (88 rushing, 36 receiving) to help the Broncos to a 20-17 overtime win against the Patriots on Sunday. His 124 yards from scrimmage ranked eighth in the NFL for the week.

Moreno, who averaged 4.2 yards on 21 carries, posted four runs of at least 10 yards that tied for the second most in the league for the week. Among his four receptions was a 27-yard grab on Denver's game-tying 98-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter that forced overtime.

Moreno was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were wide receivers Austin Collie of the Indianapolis Colts, Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles and Hakeem Nicks of the New York Giants along with quarterback Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets.

After the regular season, five players will be nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/rookies throughout the month of January. The winner will be announced at a press conference at Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida.

This is Pepsi's eighth year as the official soft drink sponsor of the NFL and the fifth year that Pepsi will present the NFL Rookie of the Week and NFL Rookie of the Year awards.
