NASHVILLE, Tenn. >> Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota has been selected the AFC offensive player of the week for the second time in his six starts.

The NFL announced the honor Wednesday.

Mariota threw for a career-best 371 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in last week’s 34-28 overtime win over New Orleans. That was his second game with four TDs and no interceptions this season, matching Tom Brady of New England as the only quarterbacks with such games this season.

The rookie first won this award after the season-opening win at Tampa Bay. He is just the second rookie to win player of the week twice, joining Robert Griffin III who won the NFC award twice in 2012 on his way to earning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year that season.
