Indianapolis Colts’ Quarterback Andrew Luck’s bye week has just gotten a little bit better.

Following a 39-33 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, Luck was named by the NFL as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for week number-seven. Luck threw for 228 yards on 21-38 passing with three touchdowns, while also rushing in a touchdown on his own.

As usual, Luck was very respectful of his Colts teammates, embracing them along with the award.

“It’s a true honor and very indicative of a great team win over a good Broncos team,” said Luck, who has now won the award twice. “We’ve still got a long way to go in the season, but we’re on the right track.”

Luck has thrown for 1,574 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions through the first seven games of the season this year, and the Colts return to action on November 3rd when the Colts travel to Houston.
