Russell Wilson up for NFL Rookie of the Week honors

Tom Szczerbowski

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback has been making a case for rookie of the year lately.

Russell Wilson was nominated for the NFL's rookie of the week again on Tuesday after running all over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in a 50-17 win, the Seahawks posted on their team blog.

Wilson was just 14-for-23 for 205 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, but he did most of his damage on the ground. He took over the run game and rushed nine times for 92 yards and three touchdowns as the Seahawks won their third straight game.

He has won the rookie of the week award once this season, in Week 10. Wilson led the Seahawks to a 28-7 victory over the Jets, throwing 12-for-19 for 188 yards and two touchdowns.

Wilson has been nominated for the award five other times this season. He will face off this week against Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, 49ers running back LaMichael James, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Vikings kicker Blair Walsh.

Voting takes place here.
