Quarterback BRETT FAVRE of the Green Bay Packers and running back WILLIE PARKER of the Pittsburgh Steelers are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on October 28 - 29, the NFL announced Thursday.

Favre went 21 of 27 for 331 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 19 - 13 win over the Denver Broncos. Favre threw a 79-yard touchdown pass in the first-quarter to put the Packers on the board and won the game in the first 16 seconds of overtime with an 82-yard touchdown pass.

Parker carried the ball 22 times for 126 yards including one touchdown in the Steelers' 24 - 13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Favre and Parker were selected from among finalists in air and ground categories. The other FedEx Express NFL Player of the Week finalists were quarterbacks TOM BRADY of the New England Patriots and DREW BREES of the New Orleans Saints, while running backs JOSEPH ADDAI of the Indianapolis Colts and KEVIN JONES of the Detroit Lions were the other finalists for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week.

Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for the local community. Along with the player awards, FedEx is awarding Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, the children's hospitals in each of the winning markets, each a check for $5,000.

The children's hospitals in the two season-long winner's markets, announced at Super Bowl XLII in Arizona, will be awarded $25,000 each. That means that FedEx will deliver nearly $250,000 to local children's hospitals around the country in recognition of the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Award winners.

FedEx, the premier global provider of transportation, e-commerce and supply-chain management services, is the Official Delivery Service Sponsor of the NFL, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. Through the weekly FedEx Air and Ground awards, FedEx recognizes those NFL players who represent the same speed, precision and teamwork that their customers have come to expect from the full range of FedEx air, ground, freight and international shipping services.
