Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Thursday, November 27 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Penny For Ground Player Of The Week
Putting up 129 rushing yards in 14 rush attempts, one of which was a touchdown, Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny made his way on the list of nominees for the NFL’s Air & Ground Players of the Week. Penny had one heck of a game in Philadelphia, especially his 58-yard touchdown run up the middle in the fourth quarter.
The League has recognized both quarterbacks and running backs from the League for 17 years. They highlight the players who deliver the best performances for their respective fans and teammates each week. From Week 12, Penny is a nominee amongst Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry and Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb.
“Each week, FedEx will donate $2,000 to the USO on behalf of the NFL award winners through FedEx Cares. The $4,000 donation will support the USO Pathfinder program, which provides resources and personalized services to assist service members and military spouses in their transition back to civilian life,” according to NFL.com.
“FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year winners—announced each year during the Super Bowl Week at NFL Honors—will receive a $20,000 donation in their name to the USO.”
Make your way over to NFL.com to vote for the second-year running back.
