Denver Broncos cornerback Pat Surtain and running back Javonte Williams have both been nominated for the Rookie of the Week award on NFL.com.

Denver’s not the only team that has a pair of players nominated — the Miami Dolphins also have two nominees in outside linebacker Jaelan Phillips (three sacks) and wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (nine catches for 137 yards and a touchdown).

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (310 passing yards, two touchdowns) and San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (168 yards from scrimmage, one touchdown) were also nominated.

Williams had a big game on Sunday, totaling 111 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown despite playing in a shared backfield with Melvin Gordon.

Surtain also had an impressive performance, totaling five tackles, two pass breakups and two interceptions, one of which was returned 70 yards for a touchdown. Surtain’s pick-six brought back memories of Champ Bailey.

Fans can vote for the Rookie of the Week award on NFL.com.
