Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger set franchise highs for attempts (50) and completions (36) in winning games in Week 9. He led the Steelers to a victory over AFC rival New England. 

The effort gave him his second AFC Offensive Player of the Week honor this season, and eighth in his career. 

He threw for 365 yards and two touchdowns in the win, and minus one first-half interception, it may have been his finest performance this season. He won the same honor after a 38-17 win over Tennessee in Week 5. 

Roethlisberger has 11 touchdowns and two interceptions in his past four games - all wins - as the Steelers currently have the best record in the AFC (6-2) after a questionable 2-2 start. 

Roethlisberger has been the catalyst of the resurgence. With injuries stacking up on the defensive side of the ball, the Steelers offense has become more of a formidable unit than it started off, and has put together some impressive performances. 

Roethlisberger's second win this year combines with RB Rashard Mendenhall's Player of the Week award in Week 6, giving the Steelers three this season.
