Following his first NFL home start in which he threw for over 300 yards and scored twice, Broncos rookie quarterback Tim Tebow has been nominated for two NFL weekly awards.
A finalist for both the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors for games played Dec. 23-28, and the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week for games played Dec. 23-27, Tebow’s week 16 performance certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.
This his second rookie of the week nomination this season, he won the award in week ten after rushing and throwing for a pair of scores against Kansas City. This is the first time however, that he (or any other Bronco) has been nominated for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week this season.
Fans can vote for one of the five rookie of the week finalists and one of the three Moment of the Week nominees at NFL.com until Friday.
