Tebow earns Week 16 Pepsi Rookie of the Week honors

Voters on NFL.com have made their choice. Quarterback Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played Dec. 23-28, the NFL announced Friday.

Tebow led the Broncos to a 24-23 win over the Houston Texans, completing 16 to 29 passes for 308 yards and one touchdown. He also had 10 carries and one rushing touchdown.

Tebow was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were safety Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs, quarterback Sam Bradford of the St. Louis Rams, cornerback Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns and quarterback Joe Webb of the Minnesota Vikings.

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 XLV in North Texas.

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