Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton won’t be winning the AFC Offensive Players of the Week award fro a second-straight week.

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. Luck completed 21/38 passes for 228 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions, and for his efforts, Luck was tabbed the AFC Offensive POW

In Dalton’s road game against the Detroit Lions, he was 24/34 for 372 yards, the third-highest total of his career and threw three touchdown passes for the second straight game. He didn’t have an interception to help him reach a career-high 135.9 QB rating.

Both QBs have their teams leading their respective divisions at 5-2.
