Carson Wentz has been a professional football player for just four games, and he has been named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for his performances in three of those four games.


The NFL announced today that Wentz was named Rookie of the Week for the third time after his 25 of 33, 238 yard, 2 TD, 1 INT performance that came in a loss in Detroit to the Lions last Sunday. The other nominees were Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, Bears RB Jordan Howard, Chargers DE Joey Bosa, and Packers LB Kyle Fackrell.

Wentz was previously named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for September, NFL Player of the Week for his game against the Steelers Week 3, as well as his earlier two NFL Rookie of the Month nods in Week 1 against the Browns and Week 3 against the Steelers.

In case you haven't noticed, Wentz is good.
