Bradford is up against four other first year players, including an offensive lineman, C Maurkice Pouncey of the Steelers. Bradford also won the award in week 4.
Speaking of rookie awards for Bradford, he's the odds on favorite for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Here's what Peter King said about him in his MMQ column this week:
St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford may be on his way to being voted the unanimous NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, a rarity when fractious sportswriters vote for awards. That's because he's been one of the best quarterbacks in football -- not just one of the best rookie quarterbacks -- since the middle of October.
Through his last six games, Bradford has a 64 percent completion rate, 1,307 passing yards, a 97.1 QB rating and an astounding 11-1 TD/INT ratio. He's clearly in the midst of a special season, setting high expectations not just for himself but for the team he leads.
