Three Seahawks are up for weekly honors at NFL.com, and two of them are competing for the same award.
Wide receiver Tyler Lockett and running back Thomas Rawls are up for Rookie of the Week after their performances in this past Sunday's 29-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Rawls' record day also has him up for Ground Player of the Week, while quarterback Russell Wilson has been nominated for Air Player of the Week.
Lockett, Seattle's third-round pick out of Kansas State, recorded two receiving touchdowns against the 49ers to become the first Seahawks rookie since Joey Galloway in 1995 to catch two touchdowns in a game. Rawls ran wild in place of the injured Marshawn Lynch (abdomen), racking up a franchise rookie-record 209 rushing yards, 46 more through the air, and two total touchdowns to become the first player in NFL history with 250-plus scrimmage yards, a rushing touchdown and receiving touchdown in the same game. Wilson, meanwhile, posted the best completion percentage of his four-year career (82.8), going 24-for-29 for 260 yards and three touchdowns for a 138.5 passer rating, a stat line that included a perfect 11-for-11 against the 49ers blitz.
Lockett and Rawls' competition for Rookie of the Week includes Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver J.J. Nelson, and Chicago Bears safety Adrian Amos. For Ground Player of the Week, Rawls is up against Tampa Bay's Doug Martin and the Kansas City Chiefs' Spencer Ware, a former draft pick of the Seahawks. And for Air Player of the Week, Wilson is facing Winston and the Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton.
