Fans Vote C.J. Stroud Rookie of the Year
NFL fans awarded Texans QB C.J. Stroud the Rookie of the Year. This was a very competitive class that included talent such as Detroit Lions TE Sam LaPorta and Los Angeles Rams WR Puka Nacua. So, what did Stroud do to deserve this recognition from the fans?
Well, Stroud had 4,108 passing yards, 23 touchdown passes, and just five interceptions. On top of this, he led the Texans to a playoff victory over the Cleveland Browns. Stroud made NFL rookie playoff history by doing so.
