Drew Lock named FedEx Air Player of the Week following Week 14 performance

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — On the heels of a four-touchdown day, Drew Lock has been voted the FedEx Air Player of the Week for Week 14, the NFL announced Wednesday.

Lock completed 21-of-27 passes for 280 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in a 32-27 win over the Panthers.

Lock beat out Aaron Rodgers and Mitchell Trubisky for the honor, as he garnered 51 percent of the vote. He is the first Broncos quarterback since Trevor Siemian in 2017 to be named FedEx Air Player of the Week.

The second-year player's 149.5 quarterback rating was the third-best single-game mark in franchise history and the best performance by a Denver quarterback during a road start.

Lock capped an impressive day with a 49-yard touchdown pass to KJ Hamler to extend the Broncos' margin and provide the needed cushion to earn the team's fifth win of the season.

With that final touchdown pass, he became the first Broncos quarterback since 2016 to throw four or more touchdowns without an interception.

Lock is the first Broncos player to win a FedEx Air and Ground Player of the Week honor this season. Melvin Gordon III was nominated in both Weeks 4 and 13.
