Barnett named Rookie of the Week

Packer middle linebacker Nick Barnett's memorable performance in the team's 31-6 win over Detroit Sunday at Lambeau Field has earned him Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors.<P>

Barnett topped on-line fan balloting following Week 2 games. He recorded his first pro interception and led the team with 14 tackles.

"It's like a pat on the back," Barnett told reporters Thursday. "But I'm not going to be, 'Ok, I got an award. I'm good and all that.' I have to come out there and try to get another one this week and next week and just try to improve."
