Ryan Mathews has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award for his performance against the Denver Broncos. That seems like forever ago, but that was one of his best performances that he has ever put together in a San Diego Chargers uniform.

He ran for 127 yards on 29 carries with a touchdown in the game. He helped keep Peyton Manning on the sideline, by milking that clock in the running game.

He is up against Eddie Lacy and Zac Stacy for the award this week. Lacy ran for 141 yards and a score in his game and Stacy ran for 133 yards and a score.

Get out there and vote to support Ryan. He has had an incredible season and has helped turn this offense around. Love everything that Ryan has been doing this season. He has held onto the football and has been able to stay fairly healthy this season.
