GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Christian Watson has been nominated for the NFL Rookie of Week 10 after catching four passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Fans are encouraged to vote for Watson here. Voting ends on Wednesday.
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 be up for 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.
The other nominees for NFL Rookie of Week 10 include Houston running back Dameon Pierce, Tampa Bay running back Rachaad White, Buffalo cornerback Christian Benford, Chicago linebacker Jack Sanborn and Arizona linebacker Myjai Sanders.
