The Jacksonville Jaguars claimed their third victory of the season on Thursday night and linebacker Telvin Smith was a big reason why, making 15 tackles (10 solo) and one quarterback hurry, earning him his second Pepsi Rookie of the Week nomination this season.

Telvin's first nomination came in the team's first victory against the Cleveland Browns, when he had four tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, an interception, and a batted pass.
