Oakland Raiders rookie running back DeAndré Washington put on a show Saturday afternoon against the Indianapolis Colts, and played a substantial role in the team’s 33-25 win. Washington carried the ball 12 times and went off for an impressive 99 yards and two rushing touchdowns, coincidentally, the first two of his young career.

Washington’s breakout performance on Christmas Eve earned him a nomination for Pepsi’s Week 16 Rookie of the Week. To vote for Washington, tweet his name along with #NFLROTW.
