Quarterback BRETT FAVRE of the Green Bay Packers and running back FRANK GORE of the San Francisco 49ers are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on November 22 - 26, the NFL announced today.

Brett Favre completed 31 of 41 passes for 381 yards including three touchdowns in the Packers' 37 - 26 win over the Detroit Lions.

Frank Gore scored two touchdowns over 116 yards and 21 carries in the 49ers' 37 - 31 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Favre and Gore were selected from among finalists in air and ground categories. The other FedEx Express NFL Player of the Week finalists were quarterbacks CARSON PALMER of the Cincinnati Bengals and KURT WARNER of the Arizona Cardinals, while running backs JUSTIN FARGAS of the Oakland Raiders and JAMAL LEWIS of the Cleveland Browns were the other finalists for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week.

Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for the local community. Along with the player awards, FedEx is awarding Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation and UCSF Children's Hospital Foundation, the children's hospitals in the winning markets, two checks for $5,000.

The children's hospitals in the two season-long winner's markets, announced at Super Bowl XLII in Arizona, will be awarded $25,000 each. That means that FedEx will deliver nearly $250,000 to local children's hospitals around the country in recognition of the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award winners.

FedEx, the premier global provider of transportation, e-commerce and supply-chain management services, is the Official Delivery Service Sponsor of the NFL, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. Through the weekly FedEx Air and Ground awards, FedEx recognizes those NFL players who represent the same speed, precision and teamwork that their customers have come to expect from the full range of FedEx air, ground, freight and international shipping services.
