GREEN BAY — Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones has been named a finalist for FedEx Ground's NFL Player of the Week.

The news comes after Jones had an incredible performance Saturday against the Carolina Panthers when he rushed for 145 yards on 20 attempts and scored one touchdown.

Jones is up against Chicago's David Montgomery who rushed for 146 yards on 32 attempts and scored two touchdowns.

Should Jones win, it wouldn't just benefit him, but N.E.W. Community Clinic in Green Bay as well. Jones' win would mean the clinic would receive a backpack that could help them take care of 500 people in the Green Bay community.

Each Monday morning of the regular season, through Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET, fans can click here or visit the NFL Twitter page to vote for their favorite performances of the week.

The winner of the FedEx Ground Player of the Week will be announced Thursday.
