Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week
When Tom Brady doesn’t seem like Tom Brady, it’s taken notice of. The first three weeks he has been more second-tier than top 3 quarterback in the world, but after the first half of last Sunday’s victory against the Buffalo Bills, he cut on the switch to where he resembled his normal self.
His play awarded him by being named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. His stat line for last week was
22/36, 340 yards, 9.4 yards per throw, three touchdowns, one sack, 120.1 passer rating, 96.5 Quarterback rating (ESPN).
Seeing at how the offense played in first half, it’s weird to see Brady walk away with this accolade. It’s also proof that with Brady, Josh McDaniels work load should be light. The packages he’s giving the team are nice, but at the end of the day, like shown in the second half of the Bills game, Brady is smart enough to run the no-huddle and get the show rolling.
It’s no coincidence that the New England Patriots put up seven points in the first half and 42 in the second half.
It’s shocking that it took four weeks to get a vintage Patriots performance from the team and it’s no surprise that it started when Brady has, by far, his best game of the season. Especially when playing from behind.
This 300-yard performance is Brady’s third of the year and 48th in his career. Hopefully he keeps up this play as the team takes on Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos this week.
