Ben Roethlisberger named AFC offensive player of the week

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger only needed a quarter to effectively beat the Chiefs Sunday night.

And even if he had stopped after 15 minutes (and maybe he should have), he’d have probably still won AFC offensive player of the week.

Roethlisberger was 22-of-27 for 300 yards and five touchdowns, making easy work of the Kansas City defense. He was up 22-0 after the first quarter, and stayed in the game long enough for the team to prove its point about moving past an embarrassing loss to the Eagles.

Roethlisberger has 11 touchdowns so far this season, made more impressive since that Eagles game featured none. It’s his 14th player of the week award.

    Beyond the numbers Roethlisberger has matured into a real leader. Hard not to respect his game and between serious rivals a little respect goes a long way. Recognizing and appreciating a dangerous opponent’s abilities is something that’s lost on the trolls and fanboys but for real fans it’s part of what makes the game what it is. Roethlisberger is a great QB and a 1st ballot HoFer only a fool or a troll would think otherwise.

    I was kicking myself for benching Matt Ryan in F.F. until my other QB Ben threw his 5th TD. Welcome back LeVeon.

    Not a tougher qb in the league!!! Well deserved, but for Big Ben probably not a big thing. He’s got his eyes on bigger prizes.

    He spread 22 completions around to 9 different receivers too, 2 rbs, 3 tes and 4 wrs. Second time this year he’s done that and it helps make this offense even more difficult to stop. If he can be consistent and healthy this could be his best year yet.

    Go Steelers!

    Well deserved!

    Couldn’t agree more. The way he’s taken command over the last two years has, in my opinion, taken from that borderline HOF’er to a sure bet. My Ravens goggles won’t see that but like you said, one would be foolish to think otherwise. I will say though I think he still needs another good individual playoff run or two because when I think Steelers playoffs I still think of that defense, the Bus, and others not named Ben. Long story short… people need to see that leadership and command in January or he’ll risk being put into that Peyton regular season QB convo. He’s never put that team on his back in January and I think most honest Burgh fans would agree.

    Uhm, not that your comment has anything to do with the topic at hand…but KC has won 5 of the last 6 against Oakland, and overall have won much more than they’ve lost.

    don’t like the steelers but really do respect them. with ben at qb, they’ve always managed to remain relevant.

    Last week Big Ben was just offensive.

    Regardless of what fan anyone is. It’s refreshing when they tell it like it is

    He threw as many TDs as he did incompletions.

    Which means of course that Citizenstrange will be named “Missing PFT Poster of the Week.”
