Sammy Watkins Named Pepsi's Rookie of Week 8

Sammy Watkins was named Pepsi's Week 8 Rookie of the Week. This is the third time Watkins has won the award this season.

For the third time in eight weeks, Sammy Watkins has won Pepsi's Rookie of the Week award.

The Buffalo Bills wide receiver won the award after recording three receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown against the New York Jets. Watkins became the first three-time winner of the award this season. He beat out Vikings LB Anthony Barr, Cardinals WR John Brown, Saints WR Brandin Cooks and Steelers WR Martavis Bryant.

Watkins is on bye this week, so another rookie will get the honor in Week 9. That said, there's no doubt that Buffalo's top selection in the 2014 NFL draft will have a few more nominations for the award by the end of the season.
