Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continued to add to his treasure trove of awards Wednesday, winning his second consecutive AFC Offensive Player of the Week award.

Brady went 31-40 for 423 yards and three touchdown against the San Diego Chargers in a 35-21 win to advance New England to 2-0 on the season. A week prior, Brady also won Player of the Week honors after torching the Miami Dolphins defense for 517 yards and four scores in an opening week 38-24 triumph.

The Patriots’ signal-caller leads the NFL in passing yards (940), QB rating (128.0), and is tied for the lead with seven touchdowns.

Brady has won the award 19 times, trailing only Peyton Manning (20) for the all-time lead. He previously won the award on back-to-back occasions in 2010 (Weeks 1213) and 2007 (Weeks 67). He is also the only player to earn back-to-back AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors to open a season in the history of the award.

Brady and the Patriots return to action this Sunday at 1 p.m. against the upstart Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, N.Y.
