Wallace wins rookie of the week


Steelers' wide receiver Mike Wallace is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on January 3.

Wallace had two receptions for 64 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown, in the Steelers' 30-24 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Wallace was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were running back Arian Foster of the Houston Texans, running back Knowshon Moreno of the Denver Broncos, TE Zach Miller of the Jacksonville Jaguars and linebacker James Laurinaitis of the St. Louis Rams.

This is the third time Wallace won the honor (Week 9 and Week 15)
