Detroit Lions up for Weekly Awards For Performance Against Raiders


Matthew Stafford’s big day in Oakland earned him one of the three nominations for week 15′s FedEx air player of the week. Drew Brees and Tony Romo join Stafford in contention for the award.

Stafford was previously named the FedEx air player of the week in week two and week eleven and was also nominated in week 8. He’s the only quarterback other than Aaron Rodgers to win the award more than once this year. Brees and Romo will join that group if they win this week’s vote.

Calvin Johnson has been named as a GMC Never Say Die Moment nominee for his part in the Lions’ 98-yard game winning drive. He’s joined by Kyle Orton and Dan Orlovsky, both of whom helped their teams secure improbable victories.

Be sure to support Stafford and Johnson by voting for each award!
