Schaub nominated for FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week


Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has been nominated for FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week after completing 25-of-33 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 35-31 win over Kansas City.

This is the second time this season that Schaub has been nominated for the award. Schaub was selected after the Texans' Week 2 overtime win at Washington, where he threw for a team-record 497 yards and three touchdowns.

Also in the running for the award are Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb.

Fans can vote for Schaub at Voting ends at 11 a.m. CT on Friday, Oct. 22, and the winner will be announced that evening on

As part of the Air & Ground program, FedEx continues its support of Safe Kids USA by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Safe Kids coalitions in that team's city, is used for pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year, from upgraded crosswalks and safety signs to traffic barriers and educational training.
