Moreno and Buckhalter win weekly awards

Moreno and Buckhalter rushed for 199 yards against the Chiefs Sunday, and both earned awards for thier efforts. Via For an NFL high fourth time this season, Moreno has been named Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. The Georgia product rushed for 86 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos’ 44-13 victory at Arrowhead Stadium. He is the only rookie to win the award four times this season, as Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez won it during Week 1 through Week 3. With 113 rushing yards on 12 carries against the Chiefs, Buckhalter has been named FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week. The nine-year veteran is the first Bronco to win the award this season. When asked how the two complement each other, Head Coach Josh McDaniels said each back has their own method to reach the edge of a defense. “Buck’s maybe a little faster,” McDaniels said. “He’s got a great burst and is playing really well right now. Knowshon is a little bit of a slippery runner inside the tackles. A little bit more spin moves, those kind of moves.”
Congrats to both backs on the awards! And a Mile High Salute to you the fans for voting!
