2021 NFL Rookies of the Week: Week 17


We are down to the last two weeks of the regular season, we may have seen Offensive Rookie of the Year locked up with a monster performance this week, but some would say the race is still on.

Honorable Mentions: New York Jets QB Zach Wilson (234 pass yards, 1 TD), San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance (249 pass yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 31 rush yards) Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St Brown (8 rec, 111 yards, 1 TD)

3. QB Mac Jones, New England Patriots

Jones had a nice bounce-back game by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 50-10 victory on Sunday. He threw for 227 pass yards and three touchdowns, marking his second three-touchdown game of the season. The win also stamped a ticket to the playoffs for New England.

2. RB Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers

Harris had a monster game for Pittsburgh on Monday in a winning effort against the Cleveland Browns in Ben Roethlisberger’s last home game. Harris rushed for 188 yards and a touchdown, adding three catches for 18 yards. The season is technically still alive for the Steelers, as they need a win in Week 18 against the Baltimore Ravens, a Jacksonville Jaguars win over the Indianapolis Colts, and no tie between the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders to reach the playoffs.

1. WR Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals

There was no question as to who was the Rookie of the Week this past weekend, as Chase put on a clinic on Sunday in a huge win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Chase totaled 11 receptions for 266 yards and three touchdowns, breaking the record for most receiving yards by a rookie in a regular season game. Chase has helped re-vamp the Cincinnati Bengals offense into a powerhouse, as the team clinched the AFC North with the victory.
