The Indianapolis Colts are riding high after their most recent win against the previously unbeaten Denver Broncos. QB Andrew Luck for once wasn’t in the spotlight going into the game, as Broncos QB Peyton Manning was the one getting all of the headlines as he returned to the stadium that he essentially built.

But it was Luck who stole the show and helped Indy pull off a 39-33 win, and for his efforts, Luck has been named the AFC Offensive Players o the Week.

Luck completed 21/38 passes for 228 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams dominated on the defensive side the ball on Sunday with two sacks and a forced fumble in the Bills’ road win over the Miami Dolphins, which earned him the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award.

Williams now has 10 sacks on the year after posting 10.5 last season and would wind up with a career best in that category if he continues along the same pace for the rest of the season.
