Jacksonville Jaguars rookie linebacker Telvin Smith has gone and done it again: He's been nominated for Rookie of the Week for a third time this year, and for the second consecutive week.

Thanks in part to a performance that included 16 tackles, Telvin is up against the likes of New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., Cleveland Browns running back Terrance West, Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jordan Matthews, and Minnesota Vikings quaterback Teddy Bridgewater.

In addition to 16 tackles, Telvin was one of only two Jaguars defenders to play all 81 snaps on Sunday.

Vote for Telvin here and let's help him win Rookie of the Week for Week 17.
