It was a good week for the Arizona Cardinals and Kyler Murray.

He won the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Cardinals 34-33 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

From the team:

Murray completed 27-of-37 pass attempts (72.9%) for 340 yards, three touchdowns and a 128.2 passer rating in the win. His completion percentage, touchdown total and passer rating were all career highs. Murray’s 128.2 passer rating is the highest by a rookie quarterback in the NFL this season and he became the first rookie quarterback to throw for at least three touchdowns in a game in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has been voted the PEPSI NFL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK for Week 6, the NFL announced today.

Fans voted for one of five players on NFL.com/rookies to determine the PEPSI NFL ROOKIE OF THE WEEK.

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 18th year as the official soft drink sponsor of the NFL and the 17th year that Pepsi will present the NFL Rookie of the Week and NFL Rookie of the Year award.
