A pair of Vikings players is up for weekly NFL awards after they played prominent roles in a comeback victory over the Bears on Sunday.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is one of five nominees for the Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week award after he completed six of his final seven throws Sunday for 106 yards and a touchdown as the Vikings rallied from a late 20-13 deficit to beat the Bears, 23-20, at the buzzer.

Bridgewater’s competition is Saints QB Drew Brees, Bengals QB Andy Dalton, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Panthers MLB Luke Kuechly.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who tied the game with a spectacular 40-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown, is up for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week award for the second time in three weeks. He won it for Week 6.

The other nominees are Buccaneers MLB Kwon Alexander, Rams RB Todd Gurley, Texans CB Kevin Johnson and Packers CB Damarious Randall.
