CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

For the second straight week, Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been named by the NFL as one of three nominees for FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week.

Green-Ellis rushed for 129 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown in last Sunday's 34-10 win over the Raiders, Cincinnati's third consecutive win.

The game featured the two longest runs of Green-Ellis's career—39 and 48 yards—and was the second of back-to-back 100-yard rushing efforts, the first time Green-Ellis has accomplished that feat in his career.

The other finalists are Texans RB Arian Foster and Rams RB Steven Jackson.

Bengals fans can vote for Green-Ellis now through Friday, November 30 at 3 p.m. ET to determine the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week.

The winner will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.
