Rodgers named Air NFL Player of the Week

Posted Oct 19, 2012

The NFL announced today that quarterback AARON RODGERS of the GREEN BAY PACKERS and running back SHONN GREENE of the NEW YORK JETS are the Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on October 11-15.
Rodgers threw six touchdowns going 24 of 37 for 338 yards in the Packers’ 42-24 win over the Houston Texans.
Greene rushed for 161 yards on 32 carries and scored three times in the Jets’ 35-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
Rodgers and Greene were selected from among six finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were quarterbacks JOSH FREEMAN of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and PEYTON MANNING of the Denver Broncos, and running backs AHMAD BRADSHAW of the New York Giants and C.J. SPILLER of the Buffalo Bills.
Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for local communities. Along with the player awards, there is a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players’ names to the local area offices of Junior Achievement in Green Bay and New York City. The funding is used to help U.S. small business development, by educating the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their own businesses.
