C.J. Anderson, Trevor Siemian win FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week honors
The Broncos' quarterback and running back earned plenty of acclaim for their star performances against the Cowboys on Sunday.
The Broncos swept FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week on Thursday when the NFL announced Trevor Siemian and C.J. Anderson had won the honors, respectively.
Siemian dazzled viewers Sunday afternoon by throwing for 231 yards and four touchdowns in an impressive 42-17 rout of the Cowboys. He finished the game with a 116.0 passer rating and leads the NFL in passing touchdowns with six.
Anderson balanced the Broncos' offense with 118 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown on 25 carries, with three receptions for 36 yards and a receiving touchdown. Anderson is second in the NFL in rushing yards with 199.
FedEx will make two $2,000 donations to the USO through FedEx Cares on behalf of Siemian and Anderson.
