As the holiday season comes to an end, so will the NFL regular season, as all 32 teams will take the field Sunday for their Week 17 games.
For rookies looking to win Rookie of the Year awards or affirm their standing as key players for their respective teams going into the 2014, Week 17 will be the final step of the inaugural season for many.
The end of the NFL season has taken on many different shapes for various members of the rookie class. Some might already be looking ahead to the playoffs, while others might be a part of teams fighting for a playoff spot or simply working toward its future with the postseason out of sight. And while a few rookies have brought themselves to the forefront of Rookie of the Year races, there have been others who have faltered down the stretch or suffered unfortunate injuries.
Next week, we will wrap up the rookie season here at Bleacher Report by looking at the top 50 rookies. For this week, numerous rookies have still worked their way in and out of the top 25, which constitutes the current B/R NFL Rookie Rankings.
