Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi picked up back-to-back FedEx Ground Player of the Week awards in Weeks 6 and 7, following each of his 200-yard rushing performances. Now, the Dolphins have a chance to pick up a FedEx Air Player of the Week as quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been nominated for his Week 12 performance against the San Francisco 49ers.

Tannehill was 20-for-30 for 285 yards with 3 touchdowns for a 130.6 passer rating on Sunday.

He is nominated against Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins (41-for-53, 449 yards, 2 TDs, 120.7 rating) and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (28-for-36, 310 yards, 4 TDs, 139.6 rating).

The FedEx award winners each week are determined by a fan vote. Through Thursday at 3pm ET, you can either vote at or you can use Twitter and #AirandGround with Tannehill’s last name.

The winner will be announced on Thursday afternoon, with $2,000 donated in his name to the USO.
