Senior writer jclombardi reports QB Rodgers is a nominated FedEx Air Player of week.
Quarterback Rodgers of the Packers is a finalist for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week honors for games played on December 23-28. Rogers completed 25 of 37 passes for 404 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers’ 45 -17 win over the New York Giants. Fans can vote for their great quarterback on NFL.com/FedEx from 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday through noon EST on Friday to determine the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week. The winners will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com. As part of the program, FedEx continues its support of Safe Kids USA by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players’ names. The funding, allocated to local Safe Kids coalitions in that team’s city, is used for pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year.
