It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time to vote for the NFL’s weekly awards. Once again, a Giants player is nominated after Eli Manning was named the “FedEx Air Player of the Week” and recognized for the “Never Say Never Moment of the Week” following his 510 yards in a comeback victory against Tampa Bay.
But Week 3 was all about running back Andre Brown, who rushed 20 times for 113 yards and two touchdowns as the Giants defeated the Panthers 36-7 on the road. Making his first career start, Brown’s primetime performance on Thursday night has him nominated for the “Ground Player of the Week.”
Other nominees: Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) and Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars).
