Steelers Isaac Redman nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

It's the second nomination in two weeks for the Steelers, with Jonathan Dwyer picking up a nod in Week 7, losing to Tennessee's Chris Johnson.

Steelers running back Isaac Redman had regular season highs of 147 yards and 26 carries in Pittsburgh's 24-20 win over the New York Giants in Week 9.

It's the second consecutive week a Steelers running back has been nominated for the award. Jonathan Dwyer was nominated in Week 7, losing out to Tennessee's Chris Johnson, who rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns.

Like Dwyer, Redman is up against pretty stiff competition. Tampa Bay's Doug Martin rushed for a franchise-record 251 yards on 25 carries and scored four times. Minnesota's Adrian Peterson rushed for 182 yards on 17 carries.

In other words, it's nice that Redman is nominated, and recognized in one of the best games of his career.

Having two Steelers nominated in three weeks is a dramatic turnaround, considering Pittsburgh was averaging 71 yards a carry through Week 6. They're one of the best rushing teams over the past three games, and look to continue that streak in Week 10 against Kansas City.
