Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is one of five nominees for Pepsi Rookie of the Week while running back Cedric Benson is one of three finalists for FedEx Ground Player of the Week for their efforts in Cincinnati's 23-20 victory over the Browns last Sunday.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Dalton completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 270 yards and a touchdown, and added 23 on six carries on the ground in leading the Bengals to a key AFC North win.

Dalton is up against Washington running back Roy Helu, Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, Arizona cornerback/punt returner Patrick Peterson, and Houston defensive end J.J. Watt in this week's voting.

This is Dalton's fifth Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week nomination. He previously won the award following Cincinnati's 24-17 win at Tennessee on Nov. 6.

The winner will be announced Friday on NFL.com.

After the regular season, five players will be nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/rookies throughout the month of January. The winner will be announced at a press conference at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.

FEDEX GROUND NFL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Benson totaled 106 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and added 24 yards on four receptions in the win.

The other nominees for FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week are Tennessee running back Chris Johnson and Arizona running back Beanie Wells.

This is Benson's first FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week nomination of the season.

Fans can vote from 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday through 3 p.m. ET on Friday to determine the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week. The winners will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.

This season fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. FedEx introduces a new program called the FedEx Small Business of the Week. As fans visit NFL.com/FedEx to vote for their favorite Air & Ground players each week, they can also cast their vote for one of three small business nominees. FedEx will award $5,000 each week to the small business that receives the most online votes. The program then culminates in recognizing the FedEx Small Business of the Year with an all-inclusive trip to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
