Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is up for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week while teammate Percy Harvin is nominated for the Pepsi Rookie of Week.
Peterson rushed for 180 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, including a 64-yard highlight-reel touchdown. He is up against Seahawks RB Julius Jones, who rushed for 117 yards on 19 carries, and Jets RB Thomas Jones, who rushed 20 times for 107 yards.
Fans can vote for one player on NFL.com/FedEx from 8 a.m. Central on Tuesday through 11 a.m. Central on Friday. The winner will be announced Friday.
Last year, Peterson won the FedEx Ground Player of the Year, garnering $25,000 for a local kids charity, as well as four players of the week that drew another $4,000 for the SafeKids USA charity.
Harvin is among five players nominated for the Rookie of the Week, joining WR Kenny Britt of Titans, WR Louis Murphy of the Raiders, tackle Michael Oher of the Ravens and QB Mark Sanchez of the Jets.
Harvin had 36 yards on three receptions, 22 yards on two rushes and 99 yards on three kickoff returns. Britt had 85 yards on four receptions, Murphy had 87 yards on four receptions, Sanchez completed 18 of 31 passes for 272 yards and a touchdown, and Oher was part of an offensive line that set a Ravens record with 501 yards of offense.
Fans can vote for one of the rookies at NFL.com/rookies beginning at 8 a.m. Central Tuesday through 11 a.m. Central Friday. That winner will also be announced Friday.
After the regular season, five players will be nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honors.
