Giovani Bernard nominated for Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week

Andy Lyons

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is being recognized with one of the best rookie performances in week 14. Now it's up to you.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard was one of five players named to the weekly Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week award. Bernard generated 148 yards from scrimmage with 99 coming on the ground and 49 through the air.

It was his best overall yardage performance (but not really his best overall performance due to scoring multiple touchdowns against the Steelers and Dolphins earlier this year).

The other nominations for the rookie of the week award includes Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown (seven receptions, 92 yards and touchdown against the Vikings), Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end William Gholston (four tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass defensed), New York Jets quarterback Geno Atkins (219 yards passing, 50 yards rushing and two touchdowns) and Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patteron (four receptions, 141 yards, touchdown).

The award is a fan vote, so it's your civic duty and your moral obligation to vote for Giovani Bernard, who only does awesome things for you. Time to repay that debt.
