Brady named Player of the Week

The NFL has taken note of the breakthrough performance by second-year quarterback Tom Brady, naming him the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.



            Brady, making just his third start, completed 33-of-54 passes for 364 yards and the first two touchdown passes of his career. He led a big comeback in which the Patriots rallied from a 10-point, fourth quarter deficit to beat San Diego in dramatic fashion with an overtime field goal from **Adam Vinatieri**.  

Since taking over as the starting quarterback for the injured Drew Bledsoe, Brady has completed 63-of-111 (56.8 percent) for 664 yards and two touchdowns. He has yet to throw an interception in 114 career attempts. His error-free play has helped New England go 2-1 in Bledsoe's absence.

Bledsoe was actually the last Patriot to win Offensive Player of the Week honors. He did so last season when he passed for 299 yards and four touchdowns in a 28-19 win in Denver.
