DAVIE - Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Sunday's 25-16 win against the Bills.

Pennington completed 22 of 30 passes for 314 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. He compiled a passer rating of 117.9, the fourth time in the past five games he has had a passer rating of 100.0 or greater.

This is the fifth Player of the Week award Pennington has received in his nine-year career, and the first since the opening week of the 2006 season when he was 24 of 33 for 319 yards and threw two touchdowns in a Jets win over the Titans.

Over the past five games Pennington has completed 74.8 percent of his passes and put together a rating of 110.8 in leading the Dolphins to a 3-2 record. He has passed for 1,710 yards, with seven TDs and three interceptions. He has been sacked 11 times.
