Kolb Nominated For FedEx Air Player Of The Week

Quarterback Kevin Kolb is one of three quarterbacks nominated for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the week honors for week 3.

Kolb became the first player in NFL history to throw for over 300 yards in his first two NFL starts when he led the 34-14 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Kolb threw for 327 yards and two touchdowns on 24-34 passing. He also added a running touchdown.

The other two nominees are Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts and Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens. Manning threw for 379 yards and four touchdowns on the Colts' 31-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals, and Flacco threw for 342 yards and one touchdown on the Ravens' 34-3 pounding of the Cleveland Browns.

Be sure to vote above for the quarterback you think is most deserving of this week's honors. Vote for Kolb here, from now through noon ET on Friday. The winners will be announced on Friday evening.

Former Eagle Correll Buckhalter is also one of three running backs, along with Maurice Jones-Drew and Pierre Thomas, nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week.
