Brees completed 39 of 50 passes (78%) for 505 yards and seven touchdowns for a 131.7 passer rating in the Saints' 52-49 win over the Giants.

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? 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 each of the winning players' names to the local American Red Cross chapters in New Orleans and St. Louis. The funding is used to help assist the American Red Cross in its efforts to provide disaster relief and health services to Americans nationwide.
