Tom Brady is awesome, just in case you needed to be reminded of that.
The future Hall-of-Fame quarterback is receiving praise left and right for what he's accomplished this season, and everyone is taking notice. Brady was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week for the 25th time in his career.

Pro Football Focus has him ranked as their No. 1 quarterback through the first eight weeks of the season. Right behind him is Carson Palmer, and the rest aren't even that close.
Despite facing pressure on half of his dropbacks, Brady put together his finest game of his MVP-like season. He graded out very well when facing Miami’s pressure (+3.3), throwing for two of his four touchdowns and posting an accuracy percentage of 62.5 percent.
Right now, he's on pace to throw for 5,509 yards. That would break Peyton Manning's record of 5,477.
