Colts' TY Hilton a nominee for 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

Joe Flacco Nominated for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

For the Vikings, it was defensive end Brian Robison. 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 quickly halted his rush angle when he saw Cousins trying to escape a blitz by Anthony Barr.

Houston Texans punter Shane Lechler is the team's nominee for the annual Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

The award was created in 2014 in honor of the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Rooney Sr.

A panel of former players - Warrick Dunn, Curtis Martin, Karl Mecklenburg and Leonard Wheeler - will select eight finalists from the list of 32 nominees, four from each conference.

Robison has been with the Vikings since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
