While it was nearly a week since the Cowboys' last game, Week 13 just came to an end Monday night.
That means it's time for weekly individual awards and nominees and Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott is once again up for nomination.
Elliott is one of five finalists for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for his performance against the Vikings last Thursday. The rookie rushed for 86 yards and caught four passes for 19 yards in the 17-15 win. Elliott also rushed for his 12th touchdown of the season.
Other finalists include Chicago's Jordan Howard, Chicago's Leonard Floyd, Pittsburgh's Sean Davis and Malcom Mitchell of the Patriots.
Fans can vote for one of these five players on www.nfl.com/rookies through Friday at 2 pm CT to determine the PEPSI NFL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK, which will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.
After the regular season, five players will be nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/rookies throughout the month of January.
This is Pepsi's 15th year as the official soft drink sponsor of the NFL and the 14th year that Pepsi will present the NFL Rookie of the Week and NFL Rookie of the Year awards.
