Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman was nominated for this week's NFL Rookie of the Week Award for his three-touchdown performance in Tampa Bay's come-from-behind, 38-28 victory over Green Bay on Sunday. The win was Tampa Bay's first of the year and it came during Freeman's first NFL start.

Freeman, who was drafted with the 17th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, was 14-of-31 for 205 yards with three TDs, one interception and a two-point conversion in rallying Tampa Bay from an 11-point deficit against Green Bay.
