Romo, Brady, Brees Up For FedEx QB Award

QB Tony Romo is once again among the three finalists for this week's FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Week.

Romo, along with New Orleans' Drew Brees and New England's Tom Brady, had the three best weeks among NFL quarterbacks. Fans can vote for one player on from Tuesday morning through 2 p.m. (CST) on Friday.

The award also includes the top three rushers of the week, which include Michael Bush, Maurice Jones-Drew and Chris Johnson.

Romo completed his 13 passes last week against the Bills, including three touchdowns that put his team in complete control and the Cowboys never looked back. Romo connected on 88.5 percent of his passes for 270 yards for a 148.4 quarterback rating, the second-highest of his career and the second-highest by any NFL quarterback this season.

It's the second time Romo has been up for the award this year. His dramatic comeback win over the 49ers in Week Two when  he came back from a broken rib didn't garner enough votes over Detroit's Matthew Stafford.

The Cowboys have had a FedEx Ground winner this year in DeMarco Murray, whose 253 rushing yards against the Rams back in Week 7 gave him the weekly honor.
