Brady Notches Another AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week following New England’s 27-24 come-from-behind victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Despite an abysmal first half in which the offense was shutout, Brady finished the afternoon with 304 yards and a trio of touchdowns (two rushing, one passing) on 27-46 passing.

This is the third time Brady has won the award this year, and the first time since Week 2. The Michigan alum captured the award after tossing for 517 yards on opening night against the Dolphins before winning it again with a 423-yard performance against the Chargers.

It is the 20th time Brady has earned Player of the Week honors in his career.

Brady now has 4,897 passing yards with 36 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions on the year.

The Patriots (12-3) will look to secure homefield advantage throughout the postseason this Sunday, hosting the Buffalo Bills at 1:00 p.m. at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
