Thanks to his 340-yard, six-touchdown performance Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 9.
This makes back to back weeks that Roethlisberger has won the award and 11th time overall in his career.
After starting the game 1-of-5 passing against the Ravens, Roethlisberger finished 25-of-37 with five of his six touchdowns going to five different players. Roethlisberger also set an NFL record by throwing the most touchdowns in a two-game span (12).
In the upcoming game Sunday against the New York Jets, Roethlisberger needs 280 passing yards to register 3,000 in 2014 to reach the mark for the ninth straight year. He also needs 20 more completions to reach 3,000 in his NFL career.
