News Blitz 9/27: A deeper look at Brady's production

Tom Brady was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week yet again on Wednesday, the second straight week the 40-year-old quarterback has taken the honor.

Brady is off to a hot start in 2017, playing the position as well as anyone in the game right now.
