BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady is very good at his chosen profession of playing quarterback in the NFL.
If you needed further confirmation of that fact, Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Bills on Sunday.
In the 52-28 Patriots victory, Brady completed 22 of his 36 passes (61.1 percent) for 340 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also rushed for a four-yard touchdown, the 11th of his career.
This marks the 21st time Brady has been selected as AFC Offensive Player of the Week, tied with Peyton Manning (next week’s opposing quarterback) for most since the award was introduced in 1984. It’s the first award of the season for Brady, who earned these honors three times last season.
Sunday’s performance marked Brady’s 36th straight game with a touchdown pass, tying Brett Favre for the third-longest streak of all time.
Through four games this season, Brady has completed 65.6 percent of his passes and is on pace to throw 28 touchdowns, four interceptions and more than 4,900 yards.
