QB Aaron Rodgers Named Week 11 Fedex Air NFL Player of the Week

Posted Nov 26, 2010

Players' Cities Each Receive $2,000 Donation For Local Safe Kids USA Coalitions

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers and running back Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on November 18-22, the NFL announced today.

Rodgers completed 22 of 31 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers’ 31 – 3 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Jones-Drew had 23 rushes for 133 yards plus a reception off a screen pass that he ran for 75 yards to setup his game-winning one-yard rushing touchdown in the Jaguars’ 24-20 win over the Cleveland Browns.

Rodgers and Jones-Drew were selected from among six finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were quarterbacks Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints and Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers and running backs Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills and Michael Turner of the Atlanta Falcons.

Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for local communities. Along with the player awards, FedEx is making a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players’ names to the local Safe Kids USA coalitions in Philadelphia and Buffalo to support pedestrian safety improvements.

During the week leading up to Super Bowl XLV, FedEx plans to announce the 2010 FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year in North Texas, as well as making a donation in each winning player’s name to Safe Kids USA coalitions in the players’ cities. 

As the Official Delivery Service Sponsor of the NFL, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl, FedEx understands the need for a winning game plan, and created the Air & Ground program to highlight superior on-field performance among the league’s top-performing quarterbacks and running backs. Because FedEx has thousands of delivery trucks out on the roads each day, the company is committed to funding pedestrian safety improvements in local communities, donating more than $13 million to Safe Kids Worldwide since 2000.
