THOMAS, HARRIS WIN ROOKIE OF MONTH AWARDS
Despite setting the all-time single-game rushing record in November, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson otherwise didn't do enough to win the league's rookie of the month award on offense.
The problem? Peterson suffered a knee injury in his second game of the month, and missed the last two games of November.
So the award went to Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, the No. 3 overall pick in the draft. Thomas has been a starter since Week One, and he's a big reason for the team's dramatic improvement this season.
On defense, Jets linebacker David Harris won the prize. He's the only non-first-rounder on either side of the ball to be named rookie of the month in 2007.
