Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry has been nominated for the NFL's rookie of the week award for the third consecutive week. The Chiefs rookies have been all over the rookie of the week nominations this season.
Week 1 (WR Dexter McCluster), Week 3 (TE Tony Moeaki), Week 7 (Berry), Week 8 (Berry) and Week 9 (Berry). Only McCluster and Moeaki have won the award so we'll see if Berry can eke one out.
Berry had four tackles and his first two career sacks on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. He's had an interception in each of the two games prior to that.
Also up for the award? The Raiders' Jacoby Ford. He had 148 yards receiving and a return TD so I figure he runs away with one.
Here's what they're saying about the rest of the candidates:
Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford: Ford had six receptions for 148 yards, including key catches in the game-tying drive at the end of regulation and the game-winning OT drive in the Raiders' 23-20 victory over the Chiefs.
