Week 16 Nominees Announced: FedEx Air & Ground, Pepsi Max Rookie, & GMC Never Say Never Mome

December 26, 2012
Richmond High School



The NFL announced today that quarterbacks DREW BREES of the New Orleans Saints, PEYTON MANNING of the Denver Broncos and AARON RODGERS of the Green Bay Packers are the finalists for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week honors for games played on December 22-23, while running backs JAMAAL CHARLES of the Kansas City Chiefs, RAY RICE of Baltimore Ravens and C.J. SPILLER of the Buffalo Bills are the finalists for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week.

 

Fans can vote for one player in each category on NFL.com/FedEx from 9 A.M. EST on Monday through 3 p.m. EST on Friday to determine the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week. The winners will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.

 

Fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground program and its commitment to small business owners, FedEx will support education efforts at Junior Achievement by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players’ names. The funding, allocated to local Junior Achievement area offices in that team’s city or state, 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.
