After being nominated for the award a number of times this year, Jeremy Maclin finally won the rookie of the week award thanks to one of his best performances of the season.

Voters on NFL.com have made their choice. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on Dec. 25-28.

Maclin made six catches for 92 yards, including a 27-yard grab along the sideline that set up the game-winning field goal in the Eagles' 30–27 victory over the Denver Broncos.

It wasn't Maclin's best statistical game, but the fantastic game clinching catch made down the sidelines is something you don't often see rookies do. It was a huge play in a big game and really capped off a nice afternoon for the Eagles rookie.
