Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week
Brady completed 21 of 35 passes for 296 yards and four touchdown passes against the Texans. It was Brady’s 36th career NFL game with at least three touchdown passes and no interceptions, tied for second all-time with Brett Favre and one behind Peyton Manning (37). Brady threw touchdown passes on the Patriots first three drives and led the team to a 28-0 halftime lead. It was Brady’s 45th straight game with a touchdown pass, the longest active streak and third-longest streak all-time, behind Drew Brees (54) and Johnny Unitas (47).
It is the fourth time in 2012 that the Patriots have been honored with a Player of the Week Award. Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week in Week 4 at Buffalo and Week 8 at St. Louis and DB Devin McCourty was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 7 vs. the New York Jets.
