VOTE HERE: Benson for FedEx Ground Player of the Week


Benson
Bengals running back Cedric Benson has been recognized by the NFL for his efforts in Cincinnati's 17-14 come-from-behind win over the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday.

Benson is one of three finalists for FedEx Ground Player of the Week along with Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw and Falcons running back Michael Turner.

Benson rushed 27 times for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals victory and became the first running back in 40 games to rush for 100 yards or more against the Ravens. His effort helped Cincinnati move into sole possession of the lead in the AFC North with a 4-1 record.

Fans can vote on NFL.com for Benson. Voting for FedEx Ground Player of the Week will remain open until this Friday at noon ET. The winner will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com.

You'll be voting for more than your favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground program, FedEx continues its support of Safe Kids USA -- a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children -- by making weekly $1,000 donations in the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Safe Kids coalitions in that team's city, is used for pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year, from upgraded crosswalks and street signage to traffic barriers and educational training.
