The NFL announced that quarterbacks Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, and Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys are the finalists for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week honors for games played on November 10 - 14,.
Fans can vote for Brees on NFL.com/FedEx from 9 a.m. EST on Tuesday through 3 p.m. EST on Friday to determine the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week.
Brees connected on 30 of his 43 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' 26-23 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
The winners will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.
FedEx will support education efforts at Junior Achievement by making weekly $2,000 donations in the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Junior Achievement area offices in that team's city or state, is used to educate the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their own small businesses.
This season fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. FedEx introduces a new program called the FedEx Small Business of the Week. As fans visit NFL.com/FedEx to vote for their favorite Air & Ground players each week, they can also cast their vote for one of three small business nominees. FedEx will award $5,000 each week to the small business that receives the most online votes. The program then culminates in recognizing the FedEx Small Business of the Year with an all-inclusive trip to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
