Robison, who started his first game of the season and the 103 of his career, has been selected as the Vikings nominee for the NFL's 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. "Cam is not like that", said assistant head coach/defensive line coach John Mitchell. He doesn't care if his number is called or not. I have heard him tell players this is what we have to do, but I have to do it just as well as you have to do. He doesn't complain to referees or get into skirmishes with opposing players or coaches.

All 32 National Football League teams nominate one player for the award, named for the late Steelers owner.

Eagles vs. Cowboys Point Spread: NFL Week 11 Prediction, Pick
The Eagles defense has already been one of the top units in the National Football League through nine games this season. The Eagles have a great opportunity to all but wrap up the division title, which is already a near certainty.

The Rooney Award is now in its fourth year.

Obviously, it's a nice honor for Hilton, who's one of the best players on the Colts and now has 36 receptions for 725 receiving yards (which are the 4th most in the league) and 3 touchdown receptions on the season. The victor will be announced at NFL Honors the night before Super Bowl LII after a panel of NFL legends select the eight finalists. An NFL Legends committee of Warrick Dunn, Curtis Martin, Karl Mecklenburg and Leonard Wheeler will select the eight finalists (four from the NFC and four from the AFC) who will be up for voting. The victor will receive a $25,000 donation from the NFL Foundation to a charity of his choice and a trophy to recognize the honor.
