Rams' Bradford is Week 12 Pepsi Rookie of the Week

Voters on NFL.com have made their choice. Quarterback Sam Bradford of the St. Louis Rams is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on November 25-29, the NFL announced Friday.

Bradford completed 22 of 37 passes for 308 yards and three touchdowns in the Rams' 36-33 win over the Denver Broncos.

Bradford was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were wide receiver Jacoby Ford of the Oakland Raiders, cornerback Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul of the New York Giants and center Maurkice Pouncey of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
