After carrying the ball a career-high 32 times for 119 yards and a touchdown, running back Knowshon Moreno has been named a finalist for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week award.
His 32 carries led all NFL rushers in Week 14 games and his 119 yards on the ground marked the third 100-yard game of his career.
After the Broncos recovered an onside kick with 5:36 left in the game, Moreno helped seal the win with seven carries for 39 yards and three first downs that allowed the team to run out the clock and secure a 26-13 win over the Raiders on Thursday Night Football.
Moreno also caught four passes for 48 yards to finish with 167 total yards from scrimmage, which marked the second-highest total of his career.
To vote for Moreno, visit NFL.com/FedEX. Voting is open through 1 p.m. MST on Friday, Nov. 14. The winners will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.
As part of the Air & Ground program and its commitment to small business owners, FedEx will support education efforts at Junior Achievement by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players’ names. The funding, allocated to local Junior Achievement area offices in that team’s city or state, is used to help U.S. small business development, by educating the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their own businesses.
