GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers is a nominee for this week’s FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week award for his outstanding performance in the Packers' Week 14 win over the Chicago Bears. Rodgers completed 29 of 37 attempts for 341 yards and four touchdowns, earning him a passer rating of 141.1.

Rodgers is up against Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who threw two touchdowns in Tampa Bay's win over Buffalo, and Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, who threw four three touchdowns in his team's win over the Giants.

You can vote for the award here. Voting is open until Wednesday at 2:00 p. m. CT. Fans can also vote on Twitter via the @NFL published polls and on the NFL Mobile App.

FedEx will make a $2,000 donation in the names of the winning quarterback to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

Each donation will be made in the name of the winning quarterback, which will go towards need-based scholarships to deserving HBCU students.

FedEx also has a weekly award for the best running back, the FedEx Ground Player of the Week. Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny, and Broncos running back Melvin Gordon are this week's nominees.
