Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Green Bay Packers.

Roethlisberger completed 29 passes for a Steelers record 503 yards, including three touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 121.9.

Roethlisberger led the team on an 11-play, 86 yard drive in the fourth quarter, which culminated with a 19-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace with no time left on the clock for the 37-36 win.

Roethlisberger joined Pro Football Hall of Famers Y.A. Tittle (1962) and Warren Moon (1990) as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for at least 500 yards and three touchdowns without an interception in a game. He is also only the 10th player in NFL history to throw for at least 500 yards in a game and the ninth to do it in a non-overtime game.
