Andrew Luck, Matt Ryan among players of the week

Andrew Luck just keeps winning.

Luck's cold-blooded performance against the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos earned him the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for Week 7. Luck completed 21 of 38 passes for 228 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the 39-33 win.

In the NFC, Matt Ryan's 273-yard, three-touchdown performance, sans his two most dynamic receivers, earned him the offensive award.

Mario Williams had another dominant performance, including two sacks and one forced fumble, in the Buffalo Bills' road win over the Miami Dolphins, which earned him the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award.

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee took home the defensive award in the NFC this week. Lee's 11 tackles and one interception keyed the Cowboys' 17-3 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, which put America's Team in the NFC East driver's seat.

Shaun Suisham's four field goals, including the game-winner, helped give the Pittsburgh Steelers a much-needed win over the Baltimore Ravens and earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. (Sorry, Pat McAfee fans.)

In the NFC, Andy Lee's three punts inside the 20-yard line in the San Francisco 49ers' victory over the Tennessee Titans helped earn him the award.

NFL Media will announce the players of the week every Wednesday on NFL Network's "NFL AM." The list of Week 6 winners is right here.
