Vote Kwon Alexander for Rookie of the Week

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Kwon Alexander is up for the NFL's Rookie of the Week award after his outstanding performance against the Atlanta Falcons. The linebacker recorded 11 total tackles, an interception and a forced and recovered fumble against the Falcons as the Bucs managed a narrow 23-20 victory. He also had a second interception called back because Jacquies Smith jumped offside. In all, it was easily the rookie's best performance of the season.

Alexander did all of that despite losing his little brother just days before. The Bucs gave him the opportunity to go home and mourn, but he and his family instead decided that it was best for him to play. Alexander dedicated this game, his performance and his career to his brother.

You can vote for Alexander right here. He's up against Todd Gurley and Stefon Diggs, so he'll need your help!
