The sixth week of the NFL season was highlighted by the rookies. Everyone was essentially talking about Robert Griffin III on Sunday with a small dose of Russell Wilson beating the New England Patriots.

However, there were other performances this week that certainly stood out.

Veteran of the Week
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers: The Packers’ quarterback had an impressive game against the previous unbeaten Houston Texans. Rodgers completed 24-of-37 passes for 338 yards and six touchdowns. Additionally, it brought Green Bay back to .500 on the season and looking like the team many expected this season.

Rookie of the Week
Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins: Griffin nearly single-handedly beat the Minnesota Vikings. He finished 17-for-22 for 182 yards with a touchdown and an interception. But he also added 138 yards on the ground and two touchdowns, including a 76-yarder.

RG3 led Washington to a 38-26 win, and now NFL fans just want to see what he could do next.

Breakout Performance of the Week
JJ Watt, Houston Texans: The defensive end has solidified himself as a top pass rusher this season. The second-year player has 9.5 sacks through six games, already more than he had last season (5.5 in five games).

Watt is turning heads with his breakout season. He’s recorded at least one-half sack in every game.
