Bills RB Fred Jackson is up for FedEx NFL Ground Player of the Week for his Week 2 performance against the Raiders in Buffalo’s three-point win last weekend. Here’s how you can vote for Fred to help him beat his competition.

Just go to the voting site and cast your vote for Fred.

Jackson had two touchdowns and 117 yards on just 15 carries to help the Bills overcome the Oakland Raiders, 38-35. His 7.8 yards per carry average was the highest among backs with more than ten carries.

The other candidates he is up against is Atlanta’s Michael Turner, who rushed for 114 yards and a score on 21 carries in the Falcons’ 35-31 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. With Atlanta trailing in the fourth quarter, Turner broke off a 61 yard run to put the Falcons deep into Eagles’ territory. Five plays later, he scored the go-ahead and game-winning touchdown.

And Tampa Bay’s LeGarrette Blount, who tallied 13 carries for 71 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs’ 24-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. His two scores came in the second half as Tampa Bay rallied to win after an early 17-point deficit. His four-yard touchdown run with 31 seconds left secured the Bucs’ victory.
