Tom Brady: AFC's Offensive Player of the Week
Tom Brady was named AFC offensive player of the Week after guiding the Patriots to a 52-28 victory at Buffalo last Sunday.

The Patriots quarterback completed 22 of 36 passes for 340 yards against the Bills and threw three touchdown passes while rushing for another on a 4-yard run. After the Patriots fell behind 21-7 in the third quarter, Brady directed six second-half scoring drives, resulting in 45 second-half points, including 31 in the fourth quarter.

This is the first time Brady's won the award this year. It was something he got with some regularity the past two years. It was easily Brady's best statistical performance of the year, as many fantasy owners can probably attest to.

Perhaps most impressive is what he did in the second half, helping to lead the team to so many quick scores. Obviously, the running game also had a lot to do with that.

Brady will have to replicate this performance next week against Peyton Manning and the Broncos. If this contest goes anything like the other classic Manning-Brady battles, it'll come down to whoever scores last.
