Carson Palmer and Cedric Benson sweep the FedEx awards

New, comments

I had a rough week this week, which was highlighted by a broken down car that I had to have towed from a 6'6" garage in downtown Dayton. Note, they don't make many tow trucks today that are 6'6". However, while my week was rough, Cedric Benson and Carson Palmer each had a good week, thanks to an offense that exploded for 45 points Sunday. Palmer had already won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award earlier in the week.

That wasn't enough. It never is.

On Friday, Palmer was named the FedEx Air Player of the Week and Benson was named the Fed Ground Player of the Week. Call it FedEx Domination. A FedEx Sweep. Have a problem with the UPS guy drawing on the white board? Call in the FedEx Dominators, Palmer and Benson. They'll show you where that marker won't easily erase. Sorry. Got carried away.

This is the second time that Benson won the FedEx Ground Player of the Week. Against the Baltimore Ravens, Benson rushed for 120 yards on 27 carries and scored a touchdown.
