Elliott Needs Fans' Vote To Repeat As FedEx Ground Player of the Week

For the second straight week, Cowboys' rookie tailback Ezekiel Elliott is a finalist for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

Last week, Elliott won the fans' vote and could become a repeat winner if he can collect more votes than Arizona's David Johnson and Buffalo's LeSean McCoy.

Elliott had a third straight game of 130 yards, rushing for 134 on just 15 carries with two touchdowns, including a career-long 60-yarder in the Cowboys' 28-14 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

The FedEx Air & Ground Player of the Week award also nominated New England's Tom Brady, Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers of the Chargers for the passing portion of the award.

Every week, following the Monday Night Football game, through Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, fans can visit or tweet using #AirandGround and the nominees' last name to cast their vote. FedEx and the NFL will announce the winners every Thursday afternoon and then FedEx will award a $2,000 donation in the winning players' names to The USO.
