Voters on NFL.com have made their choice. Offensive guard Stefen Wisniewski of the Oakland Raiders is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on Sept. 25-26, the NFL announced Friday.
Wisniewski helped the Oakland offense line clear the way for 234 yards on the ground while allowing only one sack against a potent pass rush in the Raiders' 34-24 win over the New York Jets. His lead block on a touchdown run early in the fourth quarter helped give Oakland a commanding two-score lead.
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 XLVI in Indianapolis.
