NASHVILLE, Tenn. --Titans running back Chris Johnson is a candidate for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week, the NFL announced Tuesday. Fans can vote** now until 11 a.m., CT on Friday to determine the winner, which will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com.

Johnson ran for 132 yards and two touchdowns, and he caught nine passes for 100 more as the Tennessee Titans beat the Buffalo Bills 41-17 Sunday for their third straight victory. Johnson became only the second player in franchise history and the first since 1961 to hit triple digits in a game in both rushing and receiving. The only other franchise player to accomplish the feat was Billy Cannon, who had 216 rushing yards and 114 receptions against the New York Titans on Dec. 10, 1961.

The Titans (3-6) are on a roll since opening the season 0-6, and they can thank Johnson, the NFL's leading rusher and the league's first back to top 1,000 yards this season.

Other candidates include Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew and Vikings RB Adrian Peterson.
