INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck's career night has earned him some hardware.

On Wednesday morning, Luck was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week.

Luck's career-high passer rating of 147.6 on Monday night highlighted the best offensive performance we've seen from the Colts in 2016.

The quarterback was outstanding in his return from a concussion.

Against the Jets, Luck was 22-of-28 for 278 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

The play of Luck was a major reason why the Colts won by 31 points, the second largest margin of victory they've had under Chuck Pagano.

With the offensive line protecting Luck the best it has all season, the quarterback was 7-of-7 for 141 yards and two touchdowns on throws of at least 10 yards through the air.

The honor for Luck marks the third time a Colts player has won a weekly award this season (Week 5-Adam Vinatieri, Week 9-Jordan Todman).

Luck has now won 4 Offensive Player of the Week Awards. Peyton Manning (21) and Edgerrin James (6) are the only Colts with more.
