Voters on NFL.com and via Sprint wireless service have made their choice. Linebacker A.J. HAWK of the Green Bay Packers is the NFL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK for games played on November 12-13, the NFL announced Thursday.

Hawk recorded 13 total tackles and 1.5 sacks, and forced one fumble in the Packers' 23-17 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Early in the third quarter, Hawk sacked the Vikings quarterback for a 10-yard loss. He later combined with teammate Nick Barnett for another 10-yard sack, giving him four this season.

More than 57,400 fans voted this week on NFL.com and via Sprint wireless service. Hawk was selected from among five finalists. The other finalists were defensive end VICTOR ADEYANJU of the St. Louis Rams, running back JOSEPH ADDAI of the Indianapolis Colts, wide receiver MARQUES COLSTON of the New Orleans Saints and defensive back DEVIN HESTER of the Chicago Bears.

After the regular season, five players will be nominated for NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com and via Sprint wireless service throughout the month of January. The winner will be announced at a press conference at Super Bowl XLI in South Florida.
