RB Aaron Jones

GREEN BAY – Packers running back Aaron Jones has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week following Sunday's 30-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jones rushed for 130 yards on 15 carries, including a career-long 77-yard touchdown run with 2 minutes, 36 seconds left in regulation. On that play, Jones became the first Packers player to register two carries of 75-plus yards in the same season.

Fans are encouraged to vote for Jones here, on Twitter via the @NFL published polls and on the NFL Mobile App. Voting is open until Wednesday at 2 p.m. CT.

The fourth-year running back also was honored with the award earlier this season after rushing for 168 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 42-21 win over Detroit in Week 2.

By winning the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award, FedEx will honor each weekly quarterback and running back by working with Direct Relief to deliver an emergency medical backpack to a local community health center in their market. The backpack will help take care of 500 people in this community.

The other Week 13 nominees for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week are the New York Giants' Wayne Gallman and Denver's Melvin Gordon.
