Man, win a game, and you've got guys nominated for awards all over the darn place! (We've got one more after this one, so stay tuned for that as well.)

But yes, Toby Gerhart is one of three nominees for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for Week 16 in the NFL. Coming into a tough situation after Adrian Peterson was injured against the Washington Redskins, Gerhart responded with a career-long 67-yard run (almost all of which was completely untouched) and finished the game with 109 yards on 11 carries for the afternoon.

Depending on how quickly Adrian Peterson can rehab, Toby Gerhart is probably going to get a lot more chances at being the Vikings' feature running back going forward. Hopefully he can continue to respond the way he did this past Saturday.

The other two nominees for the "Ground" award this week are Rashard Mendenhall of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and C.J. Spiller of the Buffalo Bills. So yeah, head on over and vote for Toby Gerhart.
