New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week for the second consecutive week following the teams 35-21 win over the San Diego Chargers at Gillette Stadium. Brady completed 31/40 passes for 423 yards and three touchdowns while leading two drives of 80+ yards.
It's the 19th time that Brady has received the award in his career and it is also the second time that he's won the award this season. Only Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts has won the award more (20 times).
Brady is currently on pace to shatter the all-time single season passing yards record currently held by former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino. If he continues on his current path, Brady would finish with over 7,000 yards for the season and break the record in Week 11.
The Patriots will travel to upstate New York on Sunday to take on the surprising Buffalo Bills. The Bills come into the game with a record of 2-0.
