C.J. Spiller was named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for his Week 16 performance in the win over Denver. Spiller tallied 111 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in the Bills’ 40-14 defeat of the Denver Broncos. Fans voted for more than their favorite players. The weekly FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards are also a win for local communities. Along with the player awards, FedEx is making a $2,000 donation in Spiller’s name to the local Junior Achievement area offices in Western New York. The funding is used to help U.S. small business development, by educating the next generation of entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their own businesses.
