Ben Roethlisberger has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row. Roethlisberger threw 6 touchdowns and 340 yards during Sunday’s routing of the Baltimore Ravens. Over the past two games, Big Ben has thrown for 862 yards and 12 touchdowns. On his stellar performances from the past two weeks, Roethlisberger said, “For right now, there is no time to look back, we have to always look forward.”
This is the first time the Steelers quarterback has been named AFC OPOTW for back to back weeks. The last Steelers player to receive the AFC player of the week nod twice in a row was Troy Polamalu in 2010, for his performances in weeks 13 and 14.
