The two quarterbacks who won the Week 9 offensive players of the week awards started the season on the bench, underscoring the importance of backup quarterbacks.
In the AFC, veteran Jason Campbell took home the award. Campbell completed 23 of 35 passes (65.7 percent) for 262 yards with three touchdowns versus zero interceptions and a 116.6 passer rating, leading the Cleveland Browns to a 24-18 victory over the rival Baltimore Ravens.
On the defensive side of the ball, Cameron Wake got the AFC award this week to go along with his "Wake-off" safety for the Miami Dolphins. The defensive end was unblockable in the win, totaling three sacks plus a forced fumble and recovery to go along with the game-winning play.
