Warner, Peterson voted FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Week

Kurt Warner of the Arizona Cardinals and Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on Nov. 2-3.

Warner completed 23 of 34 passes for 342 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals' 34–13 win over the St. Louis Rams.

Peterson gained 139 yards and had a touchdown on 25 attempts as the Vikings beat the Houston Texans 28-21, improving Minnesota's record to 4-4.

Warner and Peterson were selected from among six finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were quarterbacks Jeff Garcia of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles along with running backs Brandon Jacobs of the New York Giants and Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens.

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.
