The NFL announced today that quarterbacks ELI MANNING of the New York Giants, PEYTON MANNING of the Denver Broncos and CHRISTIAN PONDER of the Minnesota Vikings are the finalists for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week honors for games played on December 30, while running backs ALFRED MORRIS of the Washington Redskins, ADRIAN PETERSON of Minnesota Vikings and DEANGELO WILLIAMS of the Carolina Panthers 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 Wednesday to determine the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week. The winners will be announced Wednesday 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.
