Cutler, Williams voted FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Week

Quarterback Jay Cutler of the Denver Broncos and running back DeAngelo Williams of the Carolina Panthers are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played from Dec. 4-8.

Cutler completed 32 of 40 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' 24-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Williams rushed for 186 yards on 19 carries and scored two touchdowns in the Panthers' 38–23 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football.

Cutler and Williams were selected from among six finalists in Air & Ground categories. The other finalists were quarterbacks Shaun Hill of the San Francisco 49ers and Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans along with running backs Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans and Brian Westbrook of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground program, for the first time, FedEx is teaming up with Safe Kids USA -- a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children -- to deliver safer kids by making weekly $1,000 donations in the winning players' names. The funding directly benefits local Safe Kids coalitions in that team's city, to fund pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year. This year, FedEx celebrates its fifth year of the program and will surpass the $1 million mark in funding to create safer communities for children.

New this season, fans can tune into the "FedEx Air & Ground Lowdown" posted only on NFL.com/FedEx starting Wednesday mornings. The show examines the nominees in the Air & Ground categories through exclusive video highlights and expert analysis. NFL Network's Marshall Faulk and Terrell Davis host the weekly show.

FedEx, the premier global provider of transportation, e-commerce and supply-chain management services, is the Official Delivery Service Sponsor of the NFL, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. Through the weekly FedEx Air & Ground Awards, FedEx recognizes those NFL players who represent the same speed, precision and teamwork that their customers have come to expect from the full range of FedEx air, ground, freight and international shipping services, delivering safer kids in the process. With thousands of trucks out on the roads each day, FedEx is committed to improving pedestrian safety for children, by funding education programs and environmental improvements, from signage and crosswalks to pedestrian walkways near schools and playgrounds.
