DENVER (CBS4) – After their major upset of the Los Angeles Charges, two Broncos rookies find themselves fighting for league-wide honors. Javonte Williams and Pat Surtain II are candidates for the NFL Rookie of the Week Award.
Williams took over for an injured Melvin Gordon III and tallied 111 total yards from scrimmage, including 57 receiving yards and 54 rushing yards. He also added a rushing touchdown.
On the defensive side of the ball, rookie cornerback Pat Surtain II is also up for the honor.
Surtain intercepted two passed from Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, taking one of those picks back for a touchdown. He also recorded five tackles and two pass deflections.
A game-changing performance from the rook.
