If you bet on Trevor Siemian being named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week in Week 3, congratulations, you won all the money.

The Denver Broncos’ QB threw for 312 yards and four touchdowns in his first road start, a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He was rewarded on Wednesday for that performance.

I’d say it was a pretty good first NFL road start.

Siemian and the Broncos improved to 3-0 with the victory. They take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
