Get your voting finger ready. The Denver Broncos are being recognized for a strong offensive performance against the Raiders with two weekly NFL Award nominations.

Eddie Royal Rookie wide receiver Eddie Royal, who tore it up last night to the tune of 146 yards receiving, leads the NFL in receiving yards. He’s being recognized with a nomination for Diet Pepsi Rookie of the Week, facing some stiff competition from a few QB’s and RB’s. Click here to vote for Royal!

Jay Cutler Quarterback Jay Cutler had a particularly strong performance, finishing with a passer rating of over 130, and is nominated for the FedEx Air Player of the Week. He’s the only AFC quarterback nominated, and faces Eagles QB Donovan McNabb and Saints QB Drew Brees. Click here to vote for Jay!

Andre Hall Last, but certainly not least… A special Mile High Salute to Broncos running back Andre Hall for his strong performance on the ground last night. Hall isn’t nominated for any weekly awards, but he overcame personal tragedy to lead the team in rushing yards. Hall’s mother passed away Monday, and Andre still took the field for his teammates and fans mere hours after learning of the news. You took care of the team and its fans last night, Andre, now go take care of you and yours.

    Broncos fans, there is good reason to vote for Cutler, other than us being huge fans of him: He had the highest yards per completion out of these 3 quarterbacks up for the award, so if he had gotten as many passing opportunities as McNabb and Brees he may have had more yards and TD’s

  • Kyle

    That’s a great point, Zac. Plus, which of those other guys acted as a lead blocker on a pitch? Huh?

    It appears you can vote multiple times, so hit refresh and vote 5 times. It’s the least you can do for your Broncos making you feel THIS GOOD.

    i have to give an honorable mention to Ryan Clady. an absolute wall at LT last night. he defended the blindside of Cutler and Cutler shined.

    I’m getting an HTML error when selecting Cutler for QB. Both Firefox and IE the error is displaying in. So watch out. Someone should say something, so the votes get counted properly. Don’t want no hanging chad’s. :)

    Eh ignore my last message. Tired this morning. Works fine if you select the Ground player of the game. :) Sigh…lacking sleep… :)
