Bucs QB Jameis Winston continues to pull in accolades for his four-touchdown game in Sunday's win over Atlanta, getting voted Thursday as the NFL's FedEx Air Player of the Week for Week 1.

Winston beat out the Saints' Drew Brees and the Lions' Matthew Stafford for the weekly passing honor -- he was 23-for-32 for 281 yards and four touchdowns in the Bucs' 31-24 win Sunday. It's his second time winning the honor, having won in Week 11 last season after he threw five touchdowns in an easy win over the Eagles.

Winston was also honored as the NFC Offensive Player of the Week as well. Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams took the FedEx Ground honors after rushing for 143 yards and two touchdowns Sunday night in a win over the Redskins.
