This time, it's a quarterback. His 2,152 passing yards led the league, his 60.6 completion percentage was third among those with at least 200 pass attempts, and his 13 touchdown passes were second-most.

Last year the Steelers signed Burnett, who turned 30 in January, to a three-year, $14.25 million contract that included a $4.25 million signing bonus.
