Andrew Luck named AFC Offensive Player of the Week
The NFL has announced that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 7. This marks the second time Luck has earned the award in his career.
"It's a true honor and very indicative of a great team win over a good Broncos team," said quarterback Andrew Luck. "We've still got a long way to go in the season, but we're on the right track."
Last week, Luck led the Colts to a 39-33 defeat of the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football. He completed 21-of-38 passes for 228 yards and three touchdowns for a 99.5 passer rating. Luck also rushed for one touchdown in the game.
With four total touchdowns, Luck tied his single-game career-high (four at Detroit on Dec. 2, 2012). His three touchdown passes are the most he has thrown in a first half of his career while his 199 passing yards marked the third-highest total for a first half in a single game. Luck's rushing touchdown was the eighth of his career, which ranks second among NFL quarterbacks over the last two seasons.
Through seven games this year, Luck has completed 136-of-224 passes (60.7%) for 1,574 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions for a 91.3 passer rating. Luck is the first Colts player to earn AFC Player of the Week honors this season.
