Vote Berry Often (Again)

For the second time in as many weeks, you have a chance to vote for Eric Berry as the NFL Rookie of the Week.  The fifth overall pick led the Chiefs with 10 tackles and stopped a potential game-winning drive by intercepting Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Once again, Berry is going up against tough competition.

LeGarrette Blount – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Blount led the Bucs to a 38-35 win over the Arizona Cardinals by rushing for 120 yards and 2 touchdowns on 22 carries.

Sam Bradford – St. Louis Rams

Bradford led the Rams to a 20-10 win over the Carolina Panthers, completing 25 of 32 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

Devin McCourty – New England Patriots

McCourty had four tackles and one interception which led to a touchdown drive in the Patriots’ 28 – 18 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Detroit Lions

Suh registered two sacks, four tackles, including two tackles for loss, and put an exclamation point on the victory with a 17-yard fumble return for a touchdown with 1:36 to play that gave the Lions a 37-25 win over the Redskins.

After losing out to Dez Bryant last week, I think Berry is the favorite here.  There are some great performances on the board and all of them contributed to a victory but none actually prevented their team from losing.  If Berry doesn’t hold onto that duck by Fitzpatrick, the Bills get a shot at a game-winning field goal.

A win this week would give the Chiefs three of the first eight Rookie of the Week awards.  Help make it happen by voting at
