Ben Roethlisberger was named the AFC’s offensive player of the week after his record setting game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. The quarterback’s impressive performance set a new single game franchise record in completions (40), as well as records for passing yards (522) and passing touchdowns (6). The victory also earned Roethlisberger his 100th career regular season win in his 150th start. Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana, and Tom Brady are the only other quarterbacks in NFL history to win 100 games in their first 150 starts.
Ben also became the first quarterback in league history to throw for over 500 yards in more than one game. While his performance was 32 yards shy of the all time single game passing record, it tied him for fourth with Boomer Esiason.
This is the tenth time in Ben’s career that he’s won AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
