NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Washington's Robert Griffin III beat out fellow quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson to win The Associated Press 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

From a brilliant rookie class, RG3 was a strong winner Saturday night in voting by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league.

Griffin, who underwent knee surgery last month, says, ``It's truly a blessing to be up there - to be able to stand, first and foremost.''

Bruce Arians became the first interim coach to win NFL Coach of the Year honors. Arians, now the head coach in Arizona, replaced Chuck Pagano in September when the Colts' coach was diagnosed with leukemia. Arians went 9-3 before Pagano returned, and Indianapolis made the playoffs at 10-6.

Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly, the league's leader in tackles with 164, won the top defensive rookie award.

They accepted their awards at the ``2nd Annual NFL Honors'' awards show on CBS saluting the NFL's best players, performances and plays from the 2012 season.
