Ben Roethlisberger named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

This comes as no surprise whatsoever. After torching the Indianapolis defense to the tune of 522 passing yards and six touchdowns, this honor was locked up. To put things into perspective, Roethlisberger is the only quarterback in NFL history to have two 500 yard passing games in their career. Congrats Big Ben.

Marcus Gilbert will practice on Wednesday with no restrictions. Has passed all concussion tests.

This bodes well for Gilbert's chances to play on Sunday night in a big divisional game against the Ravens.

Troy Polamalu recorded six tackles and a sack during the Steelers' 51-34 win over the Colts on Sunday.

The veteran safety made his presence felt on Sunday afternoon against the Colts. While this was a high scoring shootout, Polamalu still managed to rack up six tackles and recorded a sack in the process. His best years are behind him, but Polamalu is still a very valuable player as long as he can stay healthy.

Shaun Suisham converted seven extra-point attempts against the Colts on Sunday.

With Pittsburgh scoring touchdowns with ease, Suisham never came onto the field for a field goal attempt. Seven extra-points don't really equate to a big day in kicker terms, but at least Suisham wasn't feeling much pressure on Sunday.

Heath Miller caught seven passes on eight targets for 112 yards during Pittsburgh's 51-34 win over the Colts on Sunday.

When Ben Roethlisberger has a big game, Heath Miller is often one of the big reasons why and Sunday was no different. Though Miller had been quiet as of late, he broke out in a big way on Sunday, hauling in seven passes for 112 yards. Miller didn't reach the end zone, but fantasy owners that used him on Sunday have to be very happy the results he gave them. Sunday's performance was very nice, but don't expect many more games like that throughout the remainder of the season.

Markus Wheaton caught five passes on five targets for 56 yards and a touchdown during Pittsburgh's win over the Colts on Sunday.

Pittsburgh's young wide receivers showed up to play on Sunday and the results were fantastic. Wheaton had been quiet in recent weeks, but had a solid day against the Colts and even reached the end zone. After Sunday's game, Wheaton now has 29 receptions and 333 yards receiving this season.

Martavis Bryant caught five passes on seven targets for 83 yards with two touchdowns during Pittsburgh's win over the Colts on Sunday.

The rookie wide receiver from Clemson had himself a day on Sunday, hauling in five passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns. Bryant also had a touchdown last week and now has 123 yard receiving through two games. He is likely going to see an increased role going forward and could become a favorite of Ben Roethlisberger rather soon. He's worth an add in deeper leagues.

Antonio Brown caught 10 passes on 13 targets for 133 yards with two touchdowns during Pittsburgh's win over the Colts on Sunday.

What can't this guy do? Brown is easily one of the top three wide receivers in the league and it really isn't even debatable. He puts up eye popping numbers each and every week and Sunday was no different. He's on pace to set career highs in a facets of his game and will continue to be a top play each week as we get deeper into the season. Brown is truly matchup proof at this point.

Le'Veon Bell carried the ball 24 times for 92 yards and caught six passes on seven targets for 56 yards during Pittsburgh's 51-34 win over Indianapolis on Sunday.

Sunday was more of the same for Bell and that isn't a bad thing. The only downfall to Bell's game this year is that he's only registered two total touchdowns. That number is likely going to increase as the season goes on, so continue to be patient; the best is yet to come.
