Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was named AFC offensive player of the week for his performance in Sunday's 37-27 comeback victory against the Detroit Lions.

Roethlisberger completed 29 of 45 passes for 367 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter when the Steelers came back from a 27-20 halftime deficit. He did not throw an interception and his passer rating was a season-high 119.4.

It was the 29th time in his career that Roethlisberger led his team to victory after trailing or being tied in the fourth quarter or overtime of a regular-season game.

This is the ninth time Roethlisberger has been named AFC Offensive player of the week, and first time since in 2011.
