Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been voted the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week for Week 1, the NFL announced today. Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner has been voted the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week for Week 1.

The votes are in and fans have selected the top FedEx Air and Ground performers of the week. FedEx is proud to recognize quarterbacks and running backs who stand out on the field and deliver for their team.

By winning the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award, these players are also delivering for their communities. A $2,000 donation will be made to the USO in the names of each winner through FedEx Cares. During the 2018-2019 NFL season, FedEx Cares will donate a total of $200,000 through the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Awards Program to support USO Pathfinder and other programs that help service members transition back to civilian life.
