Rodgers, Jones-Drew named FedEx Air & Ground Players of Week

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers and running back Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on Nov. 18-22.

Rodgers completed 22 of 31 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers' 31-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Jones-Drew had 23 rushes for 133 yards plus a reception off a screen pass that he ran for 75 yards to setup his game-winning one-yard rushing touchdown in the Jaguars' 24-20 win over the Cleveland Browns.

Rodgers and Jones-Drew were selected from among six finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were quarterbacks Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints and Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers and running backs Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills and Michael Turner of the Atlanta Falcons.

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.
