Drew Lock named NFL Rookie of the Week after win vs. Texans


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — After a 300-yard, three-touchdown performance, Drew Lock has been named the NFL's Rookie of the Week.

Lock is the first rookie in NFL history to throw for those numbers in his first road start.

He finished 22-of-27 for 309 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Broncos' Week 14 game in Houston. Only two Broncos quarterbacks have thrown for more yards in a game as a rookie.

Lock, who was up for the award for the first time in his young career, is the first Broncos rookie to be tabbed for the honor since Phillip Lindsay won last season.

This is the 16th time in the award's 18-year history that a Bronco has been honored.

Lock earned the award over Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown, Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson, Bills running back Devin Singletary and Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton.

He joins Gardner Minshew and Kyler Murray as rookie quarterbacks to win the award this season.
