It’s been a big year for rookies in the NFL, especially in Week 11.
Ravens wideout Torrey Smith won the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week award, while Denver’s Von Miller won the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week Award for the week.
Smith has quickly emerged as Baltimore’s best big play threat. The Ravens’ last two huge division wins were largely because of Smith. Miller has quickly grown into one of the league’s best pass rushers of any age.
Patriots return man Julian Edelman won the Special Teams Player of the Week award after returning a punt for a touchdown and making a special teams tackle. (Edelman was not considered for the defensive award, although he did play some slot cornerback.)
