This marks the second time that Brown has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week in his career. He has also been named AFC Player of the Month and AFC Special Teams Player of the Week three times in his career previously.

A few weeks ago, Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was named the NFL’s AFC Offensive Player Of The Week for his performance against the Detroit Lions.

    Not the least bit surprising that he won this award. What IS surprising, is reading at the end of the article is that this is only the 2ND time in his great career that he has won it. Or as also noted, before Thursday nights game, that JJSS had equaled Brown’s total of 1 AFC OPW awards.
