For the second time this season, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was voted as the Pepsi Rookie of the Week at NFL.com

Bridgewater completed 15-of-21 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns in Minnesota's 31-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium. In winning the award, he beat out Packers' wide receiver Devante Adams, Jaguars' safety Aaron Colvin, Rams' running back Tre Mason, and Colts' receiver Donte Moncrief.

This is the second time this season that Bridgewater has brought home the hardware. He also won the award in Week 4 in his first NFL start, leading the Vikings past the Atlanta Falcons.

Bridgewater joins 49ers linebacker Chris Borland and Chargers' running back Branden Oliver as the two-time winners of the award for this year. Bills' wide receiver Sammy Watkins has won the award three times this season.

Bridgewater is also the only rookie quarterback to win the award this season.

Congratulations to Teddy Bridgewater on his second Rookie of the Week Award for the 2014 season!
