Brady Named AFC Player Of The Week
Tom Brady is back with the Patriots and he's already piling up awards after his first game of the 2016 season.
The National Football League announced on Wednesday morning that Brady was selected as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. In the 33-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns, Brady threw for 406 yards and had three touchdowns. It was the 26th time he has won the award, second all-time behind Peyton Manning (27).
The QB joins LeGarrette Blount as New England players to win the offensive player of the week award, while Stephen Gostkowski and Ryan Allen have taken home special teams honors.
Brady and the Pats return to Foxboro this weekend to battle another AFC North opponent, this time squaring up against the Cincinnati Bengals.
