CINCINNATI - Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week Wednesday for his third conference award of the season.

Dalton is only the second Bengal to win three weekly and/or monthly league awards in a season. Dalton was named Offensive Player of the Week after an Oct. 13 performance at Buffalo and Offensive Player of the Month for October.

In 1989, safety David Fulcher also won two weekly and one monthly awards. The NFL has issued the weekly awards since 1984 and the monthly awards since 1986.

Dalton led an impressive 42-28 win over Indianapolis Sunday with a 120.5 passer rating. He completed 24-of-35 (68.6 percent) for 275 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also had an 8-yard rushing TD.

Other Bengals award winners this season have been P Kevin Huber (Special Teams for Week 13 at San Diego), LB Vontaze Burfict (Defense for Week 11 vs. Cleveland) and WR Marvin Jones (Offense for Week 8 vs. N.Y. Jets).
