Chiefs' Justin Houston Up For NFL Rookie Of The Week

It's time to fix a vote.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston is up for the NFL rookie of the week award after a terrific three-sack performance against the Chicago Bears in Week 13. Houston added seven tackles, a forced fumble and a pass defensed in the game.


The other candidates are listed after the jump....

Colin McCarthy, Tennessee Titans: McCarthy tallied nine tackles, two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and one pass defensed in the Titans' 23-17 win over the Buffalo Bills.

Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers: Newton completed 12 of 21 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown, and rushed 14 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns in the Panthers' 38-19 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His three rushing scores give him 13 on the year, which breaks the NFL record for most rushing touchdowns in a season by a quarterback.

Christian Ponder, Minnesota Vikings: Ponder completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 381 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Vikings' 35-32 loss to the Denver Broncos.

T.J. Yates, Houston Texans: Yates converted 12 of 25 pass attempts for 188 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' 17-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. It was Yates' first start.
