Adrian Peterson ripped through the Detroit Lions defense last Sunday to the tune of 160 rushing yards and 2 TDs on 23 carries, a performance that led the Vikings to a 24-10 victory at Mall of America Field.
That performance has also earned him consideration for the Week 3 FedEx Ground Player of the Week award. Fans can click on this link to vote for Peterson, who is now the NFC’s leading rusher and is ranked 2nd in the NFL.
Fans can vote for one player in each category on NFL.com/FedEx from 8:00 a.m. CTon Tuesday through 11:00 a.m. CT on Friday to determine the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week. The winners will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com. New this year, fans will be able to keep tabs on the achievements of their favorite Air & Ground players (and others) with the NFL Milestone Tracker, presented by FedEx.
Fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground 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, from upgraded crosswalks and safety signs to traffic barriers and educational training.
