GREEN BAY — Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was voted the FedEx Air player of the week following his three-touchdown performance in Sunday’s 38-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Rodgers completed 18-of-23 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns to finish with a season-high 150.8 passer rating. He leads the NFL with 32 touchdown passes this season.
Rodgers also won the award in Week 7 after completing 39-of-56 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns against the Chicago Bears on Oct. 20.
Pittsburgh RB Le'Veon Bell won the FedEx Ground Player of the Week after rushing for 236 yards and three touchdowns on 38 carries (6.2 yards per attempt) in the Steelers' 27-20 win over Buffalo last Sunday.
The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for local communities. Along with the player awards, FedEx is making a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players’ names that will go to the USO through FedEx Cares. The donation will be used to support USO programs that keep service members connected to family, home and country as they transition from military to civilian life.
