[Le journal des rookies] week 5 – Put on the sauce

Every NFL Wednesday, the Rookie Diary honors the most prominent rookies. The best offensive beginner, his defensive alter ego, the action, the revelation of the week, the flop… And, to finish, the Power Rooking. Everything, you will know everything about the Rookies!

Offensive Rookie of the Week

Breece Hall (RB, Jets) (36th pick)
18 carries, 97 yards, 1 TD – 2 receptions, 100 yards

197 yards in all, a record for a rookie this season and for a Jets rookie. Against the Dolphins, we found in the former Iowa State all the qualities seen during his university seasons.

Along with sharp runs, he’s also skilled with those hands. The proof with his reception of 79 yards at the end of the first quarter.

Defensive Rookie of the Week

Ahmad ‘Sauce’ Gardner (CB, Jets) (4th pick)
5 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pressure

Admittedly, the statistics may not be impressive. But, Sauce Gardner made an impact for his team. He forces Miami to change his quarterback after pressure. Then he intercepts Skylar Thompson to allow his team to recover the ball which will score a touchdown to widen the gap.

In 5 games so far, the former Cincinnati has allowed only half of the receptions in which he has been targeted. Promising for the future.

Mention: Derek Stingley Jr. (BC, Texans) (3rd choice)
7 tackles, 1 interception, 2 pressures

By intercepting Trevor Lawrence in the end zone, he changed the course of the match. The player from LSU made his first interception of the season and did so when Houston was in trouble. If he continues like this, he can be in the line of the greats defensive backs from this university such as Tyrann Mathieu or Patrick Peterson.

Revelation of the week

Alec Pearce (WR, Colts) (53rd pick)
8 receptions, 81 yards
He was very useful to his quarterback Matt Ryan to snatch the equalizer against Denver and send the game into overtime. The former Cincinnati is more than a credible alternative to Michael Pittman.

action of the week

After Philly Philly, New York New York with in conclusion the tight-end of the Giants Daniel Bellinger.

Flop of the week

Cade York (K, Browns) (124th pick)
He missed the winning field goal against the Chargers and was 0/2 in this exercise on Sunday. However, his field goal score was perfect until then but the former LSU, drafted high (4th round) for a kicker, was in a day without.
