1. Ben Roethlisberger
The Steelers passing game was key on Sunday night, and you have to give some credit to the guy throwing the ball. Ben Roethlisberger put on a strong showing in front of the Pittsburgh fans, and proved why his Steelers are the best of the best in the AFC at the moment as he threw for four touchdowns on the night to account for almost all of the Steelers’ points.
2. Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown is an absolute animal, plain and simple. He made endless catches with crazy coverage, found the end zone twice and was an easy target for Roethlisberger to take advantage of against a vulnerable Packers defense.
3. Brett Hundley
The young Packers quarterback made up for his previous lackluster efforts in recent weeks to keep things close with the top team in the AFC, taking it down to the wire with one of the league’s best squads. He proved he could be a solid quarterback in the NFL with his performance on the road against a good team, and the future looks bright for Hundley.
The Steelers will move on to play in an AFC North battle on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football in Week 13, while the Packers will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next weekend.
