Remember yesterday how I pointed out what a terrific statistical day Eli Manning had? I wasn’t the only one who noticed.

Manning has been nominated for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week. He’s up against Joe Flacco and Matt Hasselbeck for the award and fans can vote here until 3 p.m. Friday.

A look at the nominees:

JOE FLACCO completed 27 of 48 passes for 389 yards and three touchdowns in the Ravens’ 37-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

MATT HASSELBECK converted 75 percent of his passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans’ 17-14 win over the Denver Broncos.

ELI MANNING completed 16 of 23 passes for 254 yards and four touchdowns as the Giants beat the Philadelphia Eagles 29-16. His 145.7 quarterback rating was the highest of any quarterback on Sunday.
