Ryan McFadden voted FedEx Air Ground Players of the Week

Quarterback Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons and running back Darren McFadden of the Oakland Raiders are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on October 24-25, the NFL announced on Friday.

Ryan led the Falcons to a 39-32 win over the Cincinnati Bengals completing 24 of 33 passes for 299 yards, three touchdowns with one interception.

McFadden rushed 16 times for 165 yards and three touchdowns in the Raiders' 59-14 win over the Denver Broncos.

Ryan and McFadden were selected from among six finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were quarterbacks Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens and Matt Moore of the Carolina Panthers and running backs Thomas Jones of the Kansas City Chiefs and Micahel Turner of the Atlanta Falcons.

Fans voted for more than their favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground program, FedEx continues its support of Safe Kids USA by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Safe Kids coalitions in that team's city, is used for pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year, from upgraded crosswalks and safety signs to traffic barriers and educational training.

As the Official Delivery Service Sponsor of the NFL, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl, FedEx understands the need for a winning game plan and created the Air & Ground program to highlight superior on-field performance among the league's top-performing quarterbacks and running backs. Because FedEx has thousands of delivery trucks on the roads each day, the company is committed to funding pedestrian safety improvements in local communities, donating more than $13 million to Safe Kids Worldwide since 2000.
