Packer linebacker Nick Barnett was named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for last weekend's games. This is the second consecutive honor for Barnett, and third of the season.<p>
Barnett was singled out from among five finalists, thanks to his efforts in the Packers' wrenching 40-34 overtime loss to Kansas City at Lambeau Field last Sunday. The Oregon State
product lead the Packers with 11 tackles in the wrenching 40-34 overtime loss to Kansas City at Lambeau Field last week.
The numbers bolstered Barnett's spot atop the NFC with 55 tackles so far this season. The rookie also has two interceptions and two sacks so far.
