Congrats Keenan! Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week
For the third time this season, Keenan Allen has been named the Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week.
The third round pick had a huge primetime performance against the Denver Broncos last Thursday, dominating the second quarter for two huge scores.
His first touchdown was particularly noteworthy as he darted, leaped and pounded his way into the end zone.
“Philip gave me the ball pretty quick so I was able to get my head around it,” Allen said. “I saw green grass and the touchdown and two defenders in front of me. It was all a mindset. I wasn’t going to be denied.”
