Bengals running back Cedric Benson is the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week, the NFL announced Friday.

Benson rushed 27 times for 120 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals 17-14 win over the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. Benson became the first running back in 40 games to rush for at least 100 yards against the Ravens.

With Benson's win FedEx is making a $1,000 donation to the Safe Kids coalitions in Cincinnati to support pedestrian safety improvements. Safe Kids USA is a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children.

Thank you to all Bengals fans for your votes.
