A little late, but you can still vote!

We’re a bit late in getting to this, but a couple of members of the Minnesota Vikings have been nominated for this week’s FedEx Air and Ground Awards!

Kirk Cousins, for the third week in a row, has been nominated for the Air Award, following his four-touchdown performance in Sunday’s victory over the Detroit Lions. His competition for this week is Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett. To say that Cousins has a bit of an uphill climb ahead of him this week would be an understatement, but you can still vote for him at the Twitter poll below.

In addition, we have a fourth nomination this season for Dalvin Cook for this week’s Ground Award. Cook is competing against former Viking (and current New Orleans Saint) Latavius Murray and Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds. At this stage of the voting, Edmonds has a slight lead on Cook, but you can change that by voting in the poll.

The recipient of the award each week gets $2,000 donated in their name to the USO via the FedEx Cares Foundation.

Like we said, it’s a bit late in the voting, and maybe a bit too late for Cousins at this point, but we can still make a late push to get Cook his second FedEx Ground Award of the season. Get to it, folks!
