Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Monday night’s 41-10 victory over the New York Jets.
It’s a very well-deserved honor for Luck, who had one of the finest performances of his career. He completed 22 of 28 passes (78.5%) for 278 yards (9.9 yards per attempt) and four touchdowns without a turnover for a passer rating of 147.6. It was the highest single-game passer rating of his career, while it was the second-highest single-game completion percentage, third-highest single-game yards per attempt, and tied for the second-highest single-game passing touchdowns. All in all, it was a heck of a performance by Luck, who was in complete control of the offense and was playing at his very best.
This is Luck’s fourth Offensive Player of the Week award, which ranks third in Colts history behind only Peyton Manning (21) and Edgerrin James (6). Furthermore, it’s the first time a Colts player has won the award this year, but the team has been represented via the Special Teams Player of the Week award, which Adam Vinatieri (week 5) and Jordan Todman (week 9) have both won. Vinatieri was also named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month in October.
This Offensive Player of the Week award for Luck is very well-deserved after the tremendous game he had on Monday night, and he’ll be adding plenty more Player of the Week awards before his career is done.
