With a season-high 303 passing yards and three touchdown passes last week in a 45-3 win against the Buffalo Bills, Alex Smith has been nominated for FedEx’s Week 5 Air Player of the Week award.
Smith joins quarterback nominees Drew Brees and Andrew Luck, who both enjoyed 300-plus yard passing performances for the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, respectively.
The 49ers quarterback currently leads the NFL with a 108.7 quarterback rating and continues to rise his level of play under Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman.
Harbaugh talked about his level of respect for Smith on Monday and said the 49ers quarterback is a better player compared to Harbaugh, a former 15-year NFL veteran signal caller.
