Marshon Lattimore has brought back the Pepsi Rookie of the Week award for the New Orleans Saints. The NFL announced on Friday afternoon that Lattimore won the award for his Week 15 performance against the New York Jets.

Lattimore finished the game with five tackles (one tackle for loss), three pass breakups, and an interception in the team’s 31-19 victory. It’s his third award for 2017, and ends up being the ninth time the Saints have taken down the honor this season (Alvin Kamara has won it six times). The closest player or team to New Orleans is Green Bay, having Aaron Jones winning twice and Jamaal Williams once.

The Ohio State product beat out big performances from Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt and Jaguars wide receiver Keelan Cole. Also in the running was Tre’Davious White and Christian McCaffrey.

Week 16 could see a big outing from Kamara against the Falcons.
