GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Christian Watson won NFL Rookie of Week 10 honors after catching four passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Watson's three receiving TDs powered Green Bay's comeback and tied the franchise's single-game rookie record, joining James Lofton (Sept. 10, 1978), Billy Howton (Nov. 27, 1952), and Max McGee (Oct. 30, 1954).

His 58-yard touchdown in the second quarter also was the longest TD reception by a Packers rookie since James Jones' 79-yarder at Denver in 2007.

Watson is the second Packers rookie to win the weekly award this season. Fourth-round pick Romeo Doubs was named NFL Rookie of the Week 3 after catching three passes for 73 yards and a TD in Green Bay's 14-12 win over Tampa Bay on Sept. 25.
