In the Broncos' 38-24 win over the Texans, Lock became the first rookie in NFL history to throw for 300 yards and three touchdowns in his first road start.

Lock completed 81.5 percent of his passes as he threw for 309 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Only two players in Broncos history have thrown for more yards in a game as a rookie.

Lock, who is the fourth quarterback in Broncos history to win his first two starts as a rookie, is one of five nominees for this week's award.

Titans WR A.J. Brown, Steelers WR Diontae Johnson, Bills RB Devin Singletary and Giants WR Darius Slayton are also up for the award.

This is the first time Lock has been nominated for the award in his young career.

If he wins, Lock would become the third rookie quarterback to win the award this season. Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew has earned the honor six times, while Cardinals QB Kyler Murray won the award in Week 6.
