The Los Angeles Rams delivered a huge win in Week 12 topping the New Orleans Saints, 26-20. In doing so, the performance of QB Jared Goff and WR Cooper Kupp have them up for the NFL’s major weekly awards.
Goff is up for the Week 12 FedEx Air Player of the Week against:
- Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers: Rivers threw for 434 yards and three TDs with just six incompletions in his 33 attempts leading the Chargers to a major Thanksgiving Day win over the Dallas Cowboys, 28-6
- Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger: Big Ben tossed four touchdowns racking up 351 yards as Pittsburgh kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired to win, 31-28
Goff is also in the mix for the Week 12 Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week against:
- Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Bryant: Logged 10 catches for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers’ win, but it was his perfect toe tapping on a 23-yard catch that helped get the Steelers in position to win that served as the cherry on this sundae
- Carolina Panthers MLB Luke Kuechly: His 34-yard fumble return for a touchdown capped a nine-tackle day as the Panthers downed the New York Jets, 35-27
- Arizona Cardinals K Phil Dawson: Kicked four field goals in the birds’ surprising 30-27 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars
- Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum: Had a nice Thanksgiving with 282 passing yards, a pair of touchdowns and no interceptions as the Vikings kept rolling by beating the Detroit Lions, 30-23
Kupp, on the other hand, is in the mix for the Week 12 Pepsi Rookie of the Week against:
- New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara: Had a 74-yard touchdown that was fine and all, but did nothing else in some game none of us remember
- Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon: Logged a career-high 114 yards topped with a TD to help the Bengals beat the Cleveland Browns, 30-16
- Washington Rookie Employers RB Samaje Perine: Hit his second consecutive game with triple digit rushing yards to help Washington top the New York Giants, 20-10
- Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett: Sacked Bengals QB Andy Dalton for his fifth sack of 2017
So go vote for the Rams’ duo for the Week 12 FedEx Air Player of the Week, the Week 12 Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week, and the Week 12 Pepsi Rookie of the Week.
