Oakland Raiders running backs Latavius Murray is a nominee for FedEx Ground® NFL Player of the Week for Week 8, the NFL announced today.

In honor of Super Bowl 50, FedEx is celebrating epic air and ground performances from yesterday, today and tomorrow. Will this year's rookies become air and ground stars? Which veterans will join the ranks of air and ground legends?
Fans have the chance to weigh in and vote for the one quarterback and the one running back they feel had this week's most epic Air & Ground performances. Voting is open until Thursday at 3:00 p.m. ET at NFL.com/FedEx. As part of the FedEx NFL Air & Ground program and its commitment to serving the community, FedEx will support the American Red Cross by making weekly $2,000 donations to the local chapters of the winning players' cities. The funding is used to help assist the American Red Cross in its efforts to provide disaster relief and health services to Americans nationwide.
