First and 10: Voters pass on Newton

If the first four weeks of the season are any indication, Cam Newton might well be the NFL’s rookie of the year. But despite his record passing pace, the Panthers’ exciting young quarterback has yet to be voted the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. Will this be the week he captures the honor? You can help decide by logging on to vote.

Here’s what else is on tap for Wednesday:

  • The Detroit Lions hit the big stage in Big D last Sunday, and their stirring comeback (or the Cowboys’ shocking collapse, depending on your point of view) was the talk of the league. If you missed the game, catch it on NFL Network Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
  • The Miami Dolphins held talks and/or workouts with veteran free agent quarterbacks David Garrard, Jake Delhomme, Trent Edwards and Brody Croyle on Tuesday as they searched for a possible replacement for injured starter Chad Henne.
  • Redskins tight end Chris Cooley breached NFL etiquette this week and rubbed salt in Tony Romo‘s wounds, calling the Cowboys quarterback a choker and revelling in his NFC East rival’s 24-point collapse against the Lions.
  • Find out who NFL Network’s “Playbook” crew of Sterling Sharpe, Brian Baldinger, Matt Millen and Joe Theismann are picking to win this week’s key matchups.
  • Check out Rich Eisen‘s latest podcast with guests Wes Welker, who’s on pace to shatter NFL receiving records, and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” writer Jeff Schaffer, whose fantasy football-inspired comedy “The League” has its third-season premiere Thursday night on FX.
