Vikings QB Brett Favre and RB Adrian Peterson have swept the FedEx NFL Air and Ground Player of the Week Awards for last week’s game.
In the Vikings 27-10 win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday, Favre completed 20 of 29 passes for 344 yards and 1 TD while Peterson rushed 18 times for 133 yards and 2 TDs.
Favre and Peterson were selected from among 6 finalists in Air and Ground categories. The other FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week finalists were QBs Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner and RBs Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew.
Fans voted for more than their favorite players from last week. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for local communities. Along with the player awards, FedEx is making a $2,000 donation in the winning players’ names to the local Safe Kids coalition in Minneapolis to support pedestrian safety improvements.
Safe Kids USA is a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children.
