The Houston Texans may not have held steady with the Indianapolis Colts throughout their 31-20 loss at NRG Stadium, but C.J. Stroud delivered a worthy performance in Week 2.

The rookie quarterback was nominated for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week. Stroud went 30-of-47 for 384 yards and two touchdowns. For the second straight week, the No. 2 overall pick avoided an interception as he posted a 63.8 completion percentage and a 103.5 passer rating.

Texans fans have until 2:00 p.m. Central Time Sept. 20 to vote for Stroud at or on Twitter via the @NFL published polls and on the NFL Mobile App.

If Stroud wins, FedEx will make a $2,000 donation in his name to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), which will go towards needs-based scholarships to deserving HBCU students.

Other Air nominees include Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who went 31-of-44 for 364 yards and four touchdowns with a 125.6 passer rating. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith went 32-of-41 for 328 yards and two touchdowns with a 116.3 passer rating.

The FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week nominees included Philadelphia Eagles running back D’Andre Swift, who carried 28 times for 175 yards and a touchdown. San Francisco 49ers running back had 20 carries for 116 yards and a touchdown. Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert had 18 carries for 121 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday Night Football.
