Burfict led the Bengals with eight tackles, two tackles for a loss, one sack, and one pass breakup in leading Cincinnati to its third straight road win.

The Pepsi MAX NFL Rookie of the Year will be announced at the second annual "NFL Honors" awards show in New Orleans on Saturday, February 2, the night before Super Bowl XLVII.
