Roethlisberger was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday. The veteran quarterback passed for five touchdowns as Pittsburgh routed Kansas City 43-14 on Sunday night. It was the fifth time in Big Ben's career that he has thrown five TD passes in a game. Roethlisberger connected with favorite target Antonio Brown for two of those scores.
Jones earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. The Falcons wide receiver had 12 receptions and a staggering 300 yards receiving in helping Atlanta defeat Carolina 48-33. His 75-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter sealed the win for the first-place Falcons. After a relatively quiet three games, the Alabama product broke out in a big way against the defending NFC champion Panthers, becoming the sixth wideout in NFL history to record a 300-yard game.
Will Fuller took home AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Not only did Fuller lead the Texans in receiving with 7 catches for 81 yards, but he also scored on a 67-yard punt return in Houston's 27-20 victory over Tennessee. The rookie out of Notre Dame has definitely been a bright spot for a Texans team missing J.J. Watt.
In the NFC, Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald was the Defensive Player of the Week. Officially credited with 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in Los Angeles' 17-13 victory over the Cardinals in Arizona, Donald was an absolute beast on defense and a big reason why the surprising Rams are 3-1 and sitting atop the NFC West.
