Tom Brady Named AFC Offensive Player Of Month After Stellar October

Tom BradyIt’s on to November.

Tom Brady on Thursday was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October after guiding the New England Patriots to a perfect 4-0 record. So much for the 37-year-old quarterback being washed up.

Brady has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Month seven times over his 15-year career. It’s the first time he’s earned the honor since December/January 2011.

Brady completed 100 of 144 passes for 1,268 yards and 14 touchdowns with no interceptions in October. He’s the only starting quarterback not to throw a pick in the month, and only Peyton Manning — who also threw for 14 touchdowns — had as many TDs.

The Patriots entered October with the 29th-ranked offense in the NFL. The unit now ranks 10th in terms of yardage. New England jumped from 24th to third in terms of scoring offense.

The Patriots have a head of steam entering Sunday’s clash with Manning’s Denver Broncos. It’s thanks in large part to Brady’s brilliance.
