GREEN BAY – For the third time in four games, Packers receiver Christian Watson has been nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week.
Watson is once again up for the award after registering 94 total yards and two touchdowns (one receiving, one rushing) in Sunday's 28-19 comeback win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. The rookie's 46-yard touchdown run off a fly sweep helped seal the victory, which moved Green Bay past Chicago for most in NFL history (787).
Fans are encouraged to vote for Watson here.
Watson was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month after catching 14 passes for 289 yards and six touchdowns in four November contests. With his late TD run against the Bears, Watson became just the third Packers player to register seven-plus receiving TDs with multiple TD runs in the same season (Johnny Blood, 1931, and Don Hutson, 1941).
The 6-foot-4 receiver was honored as NFL Rookie of Week 10 after catching four passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' 31-28 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys last month. He also was nominated for his four catches for 110 yards and a touchdown in Philadelphia in Week 12.
The other nominees for NFL Rookie of Week 13 include Washington running back Brian Robinson, New York Jets receiver Garrett Wilson, San Francisco quarterback Brock Purdy, Seattle cornerback Tariq Woolen and Dallas cornerback DaRon Bland.
