The weekly NFL awards have been handed out, and Colts QB Andrew Luck collected his third AFC Offensive Player of the Week honor in his career. Luck was dominant in the the Colts 44-17 win over the Jaguars. He was 31-of-39 for 370 yards with four touchdowns, for a career-high passer rating of 140.4.

His completion percentage of 79.5 set a career-high and his 370 yards passing is his third-highest single-game total. Luck’s four touchdown passes tied a career-high, which he last set vs. the Bengals in Week 14 of the 2013 season.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan was 21-of-24 passing for 286 yards and had three scores with no picks, generating a QB rating of 155.9 while throwing for 11.92 yards per attempt.
