Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase earned a nomination for the Pepsi Zero Sugar Rookie of the Week for his Week 1 performance against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fans can vote at NFL.com/voting/rookies and a winner will be announced Friday.

Cincinnati's first-round pick in April's draft caught a 50-yard TD from QB Joe Burrow just before halftime in the team's season-opener vs. Minnesota, and in doing so he became the third-youngest Bengal ever to score a TD.

Chase also finished the Vikings game with 101 receiving yards, which made him the youngest Bengal ever to hit 100 receiving yards in a game.
