Running back LeGarrette Blount has been nominated for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week after he rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals. This is the first time he has been nominated this season. If you want to make sure he wins, you can vote for Blount at NFL.com/rookies. Voting will end Friday at noon.

Here is a look at the other finalists:

Eric Berry, S, Kansas City Chiefs - Berry registered 10 tackles and one interception to send the game into overtime in the Chiefs' 13-10 win over the Buffalo Bills.

Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Rams - Bradford led the Rams to a 20-10 win over the Carolina Panthers, completing 25 of 32 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Detroit Lions - Suh registered two sacks, four tackles, including two tackles for loss, and put an exclamation point on the victory with a 17-yard fumble return for a touchdown with 1:36 to play that gave the Lions a 37-25 win over the Redskins.

Devin McCourty, CB, New England Patriots - McCourty had four tackles and one interception which led to a touchdown drive in the Patriots' 28 - 18 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

    its shocking that with 100yards receiving + and a touchdown mike williams does not make the list. how he has not won in any of the weeks he has been nominated is beyond me. devin mccourty makes the list with 4 tackles and an interception. yet against the bengals cody grimm, has 9 tackles, 1 interception and a touchdown yet doesn't make the list?! its flawed and if on current form mike williams does not win rookie of the year it will be a travesty!

    And why isn't Blount in the Fed Ex Ground player of the week? His 120 yards and 2 TDs i better than two of the three candidates this week.

    How is Mike not on here with 105 yards and a TD? Eric Berry had one tackle and one Int....big deal.
