Quarterbacks Matt Ryan (Falcons), Drew Brees (Saints) and Eli Manning (Giants) and running backs Latavius Murray (Raiders), Melvin Gordon (Chargers) and Mark Ingram (Saints) are the nominees for FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for Week 9, the NFL announced today.

NFL fans have the chance to decide which quarterback and running back displayed the best air and ground game this week. Fans can place their vote for the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week at and now on Twitter using #AirandGround and their favorite nominee’s last name. Voting is open until Thursday at 3:00 p.m. ET.  It’s that simple. Just like FedEx e-commerce solutions – helping small-business owners simplify e-commerce.

As part of a continued commitment by FedEx to serve local communities, a weekly $2,000 donation will be made in the name of both of the FedEx Air & Ground winners 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.
