Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, Bills S George Wilson and Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski were named AFC Players of the Week for Week Five.

Roethlisberger, playing on a sprained foot, threw for 228 yards and five touchdowns, tying the Steelers' single-game record, in the team's 38-17 win over the Titans. This is the seventh time Roethlisberger has been named Player of the Week.

Wilson was all over the field in the Bills' 31-24 win over the Eagles, recording 11 tackles (one for loss), three passes defensed and an interception.

Janikowski was 4-of-4 on field-goal attempts Sunday, including three 50-yarders, which tied an NFL record in the Raiders' 25-20 win over the Texans. Janikowski now has five field goals over 50 yards this season, the most in the NFL. Janikowski also won the award in Week One, when he kicked a record-tying 63-yard field goal against the Broncos.
