Ben Roethlisberger Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance versus the Detroit Lions in Week 11.

Roethlisberger completed 29-of-45 pass attempts for 367 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions for a season-high passer rating of 119.4. He also led his team on a 16-play, 97-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter to take a 30-27 lead. It marked the 29th time in his career during the regular season that he led his team to victory after trailing or being tied in the fourth quarter or overtime.

This marks the 10th time Roethlisberger has been named AFC Offensive player of the week, and first time since in 2011 (Weeks 5 and 8). For the season, Roethlisberger has totaled 2,901 passing yards on the season, which are the second-most in team history in a player's first 10 games of a season since 1960.
