Tom Brady has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

It's Brady's 22nd time winning the award, which ties him with Peyton Manning for the most all time.
It was maybe Brady's best game of the season as he threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns. Still, something Brady has stressed over and over again is how little he cares for individual awards like this.
Tom Brady has been MVP twice, and each time he's been asked about it he says the same thing.
He thinks that individual awards for a team sport like football are stupid. Ever humble, he gives all the credit in the world to his teammates - pointing out that he can't throw for 300 yards if his offensive line wasn't blocking well for him, or if his receivers weren't catching the ball.
So, it's great that Brady won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award, but I'm betting he doesn't have a shelf in his house with all 22 of those awards.
The only thing Brady cares about, is that Lombardi trophy.
As it should be.
