Trevor Siemian Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Trevor Siemian has received the first Conference recognition of his young career.

The last few days have been really good for Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian. Not only did he lead his team over the Cincinnati Bengals on the road, 29-17, he also landed in the NFL record books. 

Siemian's 312 yards passing and four touchdowns, with zero interceptions, made him the first player in league history to accomplish all of those things in his first career road start. The NFL has rewarded Siemian with the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award, the first of his young career. 

The honor makes Siemian the eighth Broncos quarterback to win the award, dating back to 1984 when the NFL initiated it. He joins John Elway (15x), Peyton Manning (6x), Jake Plummer (3x), Brian Griese (2x), Gary Kubiak (1x), Jay Cutler (1x) and Kyle Orton (1x) as the Broncos signal-callers to have received the honor.

Selected 250th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, Siemian is only the fifth quarterback drafted in the seventh round under the current draft format (1994) to throw four touchdowns in a game. 

Siemian becomes the second Bronco to receive Conference recognition this year, joining Von Miller, who was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 2.
