Vote Melvin Gordon FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Melvin Gordon led the Chargers to their first win of the season last week in New York.

As a result, the NFL announced that the bruising running back is one of three nominees for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week.  He's up against the Jacksonville Jaguars' Leonard Fournette and Green Bay Packers' Aaron Jones.

The 6-1, 215-pound Gordon was the focal points of the Bolts' offense, totaling 163 yards from scrimmage.  He carried the rock 20 times for 105 yards (5.3 ypc), wearing down the Giants as the day went on.  It was his first 100-yard performance on the ground since last November against the Tennessee Titans.  Gordon also caught six passes for 58 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including the game-winning score with 2:58 remaining on the clock.
