Vote Austin Ekeler for Pepsi Rookie of the Week

Austin Ekeler put on a show last Sunday vs. the Jaguars with two impressive catches for touchdowns.

The undrafted rookie out of Western State's two touchdowns accounted for both Bolts' scores on the day.  One was a 28-yarder where he tiptoed the right sideline like a tightrope to stay in bounds and find pay dirt.  The second was a 22-yard catch-and-run score.  Ekeler finished the game with 10 rushes for 42 yards while catching five passes for 77 yards.

Ekeler faces competition in the New Orleans Saints' Alvin Kamara, San Francisco 49ers' C.J. Beathard, Pittsburgh Steeles' Juju Smith-Schuster and Cleveland Browns' Deshone Kizer.

Voting is open through Friday at 12:00 p.m. PT.  Click **here** to vote for Austin Ekeler.
