Griffin passed for 320 yards and two touchdowns on 19 completions and sported a 139.9 passer rating.

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo and Atlanta passer Matt Ryan were also in contention for the FedEx NFL Air Player of the Week award, which was decided Friday after a week-long fan voting process on NFL.com.

 Because of Griffin’s win, the Junior Achievement of Greater Washington will receive a donation of $2,000 on behalf of FedEx and the NFL.
