Ben Roethlisberger Nominated For FedEx Air Player Of The Week Award
Thanks to his five touchdown passes and 228 yards passing this past Sunday against the Titans, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been nominated for the FedEx Air & Ground player of the week award. Roethlisberger tied his career best in touchdown passes for a game and only had one ill advised interception on the afternoon.
Roethlisberger played Sunday on a bad left foot and favored it throughout the game. He mixed in several key short passes and nice play action fakes on the way to a Steelers 38-17 win. Roethlisberger was 24 of 34 on the day and finished with a 116.2 quarterback rating.
Also nominated this week were quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Aaron Rodgers. The running back nominees include BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Frank Gore and Adrian Peterson. Show your support for Roethlisberger and vote for him now on NFL.com.
