Shonn Greene was named the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week for his career-day against the Colts last week.

He rushed for 161 yards on 32 carries and scored three times in the Jets' 35-9 victory over Indianapolis Colts.

Greene beat out Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who was seeking back-to-back honors, and C.J. Spiller of the Bills.

A $2,000 donation will be made in Greene's name to the local Junior Achievement in New York City.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week for his performance against the Texans -- six touchdowns and 338 passing yards in a 42-24 win.
