Ben Roethlisberger has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

The Steelers quarterback led the Steelers back from an 11-point halftime deficit last Sunday, accounting for all three of the Steelers' second-half touchdowns in a 31-28 over the Cleveland Browns.

It is the second time Roethlisberger has won the award during his career.

Roethlisberger completed 23-of-34 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns as the Steelers beat the Browns for the ninth-straight time.

He also rushed for 49 yards on five carries and had a 30-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of the game.
